Boot from stick: failed to find file system with /liveos/squashfs.img

2018-08-29, 9:24 AM

Usually we update the server firmware using mounted ISO Images by IMM Console for remote systems. (Boot from CD-Rom)
Now I have to update servers in branch offices.
In some branch offices, WAN links are low bandwidth and not stable.
Therefore, I prefer booting from internal USB stick.
I created bootable sticks in both BoMC 10.3 and 11.2.1.
Booting from stick is possible.
But after booting the following message displays:
failed to find file system with /liveos/squashfs.img

My test system was a Windows Server.
The branch office server are ESXi-Servers.
System: x3650 M4 5460

Creating DVD's is not a option, as the servers have no DVD-Drive.....

Any solutions?

Hi WAEE

 

From what you describe it sounds like it trying to boot as the 2nd method below.

 

#

Using bootable media

  1. You can use the Menu program to select the tools to include with Lenovo Bootable Media Creator bootable media, such as Dynamic System Analysis or UpdateXpress System Pack Installer.

    The Menu program can be run from the graphical user interface or from the text user interface.

    1. Select one of the following options:
      • To use the bootable ISO image, you must burn the ISO image onto a CD or DVD or mount the ISO image to a server using the virtual media function in BladeCenter Advanced Management Module (AMM), Integrated Management Module (IMM), or Remote Supervisor Adapter (RSA) II card, or another equivalent function.
      • To use the bootable PXE files, complete these steps:
        1. Copy the files in the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) created directory (grub.cfg, img3a, img2a, LiveOS/squashfs.img, pxelinux.0, bsb1.lss, bsb.msg and tc.zip) to the content directory on the Trivial File Transport Protocol (TFTP) server.
        2. Configure the PXE boot server to use pxelinux.0 as the boot file.
        3. Verify the PXE boot server and TFTP boot server are up and running.
    2. Optional: If the device you want to boot from is not first or second in the boot order, press F12 to select a device.
    3. If the --autorun option was not specified when the bootable media was created, from the Menu, select a tool to manually start.
      When the selected tool is ready, the Menu for the graphic user interface or interactive text-user interface is displayed.
    4. Click Exit to close the Menu program.
      The targeted system shuts down if it is PXE booting or performing an unattended update, otherwise it reboots.

     

    Hope that Helps

I had this happen today and it was because I was using a USB3.0 thumb drive (updating a 3650 M3). I switched to an older USB2.0 thumb drive and it went as planned.

Has anyone else had and resolved this issue? Using a USB 2.0 device did not fix for us.

 

I have tried the IBM and Lenovo BoMC and the same issue occurs, it boots from the usb, starts to load BoMC but fails.

 

Any help would be much appreciated!!!!!!!!

Hi,

I faced the same issue recently.
USB3 : boot ok, but error with "squashfs.img" as described above.

USB2 (or maybe USB1) : not possible to boot.

And then I found where is the issue : the .ISO file created with BOMC is only for CD/DVD.

I cannot boot on a USB key where the ISO file has been put.

Using BOMC and creating directly a USB device without using the ISO step was OK for me.

I have been able to test the ISO file on a DVD, and it was OK too.
