Description

I was succfully able to backup a system to cdrom. I wanted to boot that iso via the hp ilo. I did the following: ilo>vm insert cdrom http://server/backup.iso ilo>vm cdrom set boot_once ilo>power reset

I got the following message: cdrom: open failed. end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 Please go to another PC, mount this CD and copy the data disk images from the CD's /images directory to blank 1.44MB floppy disks. You should use something like 'dd if=/mnt/cdrom/images/mindi-data-1.img of=/dev/fd0' for the first data disk, mindi-data-2.img for the second, and so on. (If you are already booting from a floppy, please ignore this message.) First call to find-and-mount-cdrom failed. Sleeping for 3 seconds and trying again. cdrom: open failed. end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 Please go to another PC, mount this CD and copy the data disk images from the CD's /images directory to blank 1.44MB floppy disks. You should use something like 'dd if=/mnt/cdrom/images/mindi-data-1.img of=/dev/fd0' for the first data disk, mindi-data-2.img for the second, and so on. (If you are already booting from a floppy, please ignore this message.) OK, I am falling back to floppy mode. That means you'll have to copy the data disk images from the CD/hard disk/whatever to physical 1.44MB disks and insert them, one after the other. Please see the manual. The images are in /images on the CD, or /root/images/mindi on your hard disk. Your archives are probably fine but your tape streamer and/or CD-ROM drive are eccentric. :-) Installing additional tools ... Please insert data (floppy) disk #1 and press ENTER

Could the error also come from, that we have the cdrom on /media/cdrom in the /etc/fstab?

You need to have usb cd suppot at backup time. So either load a media through the virtual media at backup time, or force them using the FORCE_MODS option of mindi.
