    7727722. Be aware that "syslinux -s /dev/sdc1" will not make bootable the USB device through the Debian and Ubuntu distributions that use syslinux 4.02 (Ubuntu 10.10, Ubuntu 11.04, Debian Squeeze), until Canonical and Debian decide to upgrade to syslinux 4.03. Meanwhile, the solution is to replace it by: "syslinux --stupid /dev/sdc1".

    776776Since Linux kernel 2.6.32, hpsa is included, in addition to cciss (used by the system). At restore time, this driver is loaded first, and thus another set of devices is created insted of the /dev/cciss/c0d0 ones.

     793Conversely, in some other cases, at restore time, the cciss driver is loader before the hpsa one, and thus can control the Samrt Array controller, creating /dev/cciss entires instead of the expected /dev/sda ones. In that case, the reverse solution has to be used which is to add cciss to the list of excluded devices at restore time (booting with denymods="cciss")
     794
     795Example :
     796{{{
     797boot: nuke denymods=cciss
     798}}}
     799
     800Another way could be, at backup time, to add cciss to the DENY_MODS variable in /usr/sbin/mindi shell-script.
     801
     802Or to add in /etc/mindi/mindi.conf:
     803{{{
     804DENY_MODS="cciss"
     805}}}
