Hi EE.

Have a problem with a SLES 10, SP2 -  64 bit server.

I have this problem if i try to boot the XEN server, it just hangs up when i get to the point ' checking/updating CPU microcode '

The server is a HP proliant ML350, with the newest bios installed.

Then the server just hangs up! I have uploaded this movie. Try to see it.

Thank you in advise.

I have uploaded a clip, so all of you can see what is going on : http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=n6rfae&s=5

you can disable that service from within the other system (the normal sles) or, alternatively, you can append a "1" to the kernel line: that will put you in manteinance mode before services start, so that you can de/activate them manually

You won't disable a cpu microcode fuction, but rather a service that emulates it, I suppose.

Add 1 and init=/bin/bash to initiate the bash before anything else. Then, deactivate gdm. A server doesn't need graphical environment

What server architecture are you using (Intel)?  You may want to upgrade the kernel to the latest for that distribution.
