After a fresh installation on a HP DL380 G9, during OS/kernel bootstrap, there are some errors on init and they keep looping searching for HP virtual keyboard devices and the result is that the system doesn't boot at all. There where no changes made to the system(BIOS).

Here is the error information:

How should I proceed?

  • @WilhelmErasmus: Please see my additional edits making your edit even better! ;-) Keep up the good work! – Fabby Dec 13 '15 at 1:10
  • Thanks @Fabby :) Just wondering how much you are allowed to edit. Like you can submit edits for anything, but what is the furthest you can go with edits? – Wilhelm Erasmus Dec 13 '15 at 11:34
  • Thanks for editing but please use PMs for your chat. This wont get my issue solved. Thanks – Chris Dec 13 '15 at 12:26
  • @Chris: I beg to differ: now it's a clear question that can be answered. Before bot our edits, it was unclear. Now: what happens if you boot from a LiveDVD and choose "Try Ubuntu"? Does that boot? Which version/flavour of Ubuntu are you trying to boot? – Fabby Dec 13 '15 at 19:46
  • @WilhelmErasmus: very far. ping me in chat and we'll continue our discussion there. – Fabby Dec 13 '15 at 19:47

It turned out that there was an issue with the root device. When booting up it gave up waiting for root partition. Changing the root delay didnt solve it. Erasing all partitions (Reformatting didnt help in my situation) solved the issue.
