View Full Version : [ubuntu] 12.04 Beta 2 on Poweredge R720 (UEFI)

April 16th, 2012, 05:57 PM
Ubuntu 12.04 beta 2 generates a fault in the UEFI pre-boot environment on a Dell Poweredge R720 server when booting from a Live CD or Live USB. I also get the same thing with 11.04 and 11.10. Any ideas?

A system restart is required. BIOS rev 1.1.2
The system detected an exception during the UEFI pre-boot environment.

Can you try to test the kernel parameter:


and see if that helps?

I am not sure about your application requirements but installing ubuntu-linux or any other os on virtualization technology is better idea now a days.

I am running 2 dozen nodes on vmware esxi 5.0 including ubuntu 12.04 lts beta2 and works pretty well. I found managing virtual-nodes easier and I am able to squeeze more performance, stability and fail-over using various techniques with them.

I was able to try adding intremap=no_x2apic_optout to the list of kernel parameters but still was unable to boot Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2 x64 on the Dell PowerEdge R720. I get the same fault in the UEFI pre-boot environment as above.

Just to be clear, this is booting directly from the (live) CD. Ubuntu is not installed to the hard disk.

EDIT: for further clarification -- BIOS boot works fine, but I need the UEFI boot to work.

In this particular case, I need to install on the bare metal.

Hi jts181,

Do you able to solve this issue? I am facing this problem with Dell R620 server as well. I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 64bit from live CD.

Same error message is printed out when trying to boot the live CD.
