Here's my situation:
  1. HP DL160G5 hardware RAID configured (striped).
  2. Installing Oracle Unbreakable Linux (recent version).
  3. Installation not a problem and system reboots.
  4. Get the following messages (approximate): USB 1-1: device not accepting address 2, error -71
    .. /dev/sda2: read failed after 0 of 1024 at <large number>: input/ No volume groups found Buffer I/O error on device sda2, logical block <large number>
    mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
    Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempting to kill init!
  5. The server reboots after this
  6. This process repeats.

I've seen some stuff about:

a. kernel modules not in sequence
b. rebuilding the boot file using mkinitrd.
c. using modprobe, rmmod to remove certain usb modules.

None worked and the descriptions in most cases was not helpful. Has anyone else seen this problem?
