    Not able to Boot SUSE 12 using UEFI with PXE Server

    Hi,

    I am booting Suse12 with UEFI using PXE server. I am getting the below error:
    VFS:Cannot open root device "(null)" or unknown-block(0,0): error-6
    Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the avaialbe partiontons:
    Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

    I am new to Suse env. Please help me with above error. Below are the Partitioning and Answer file details which I am using.

    Partitioning in YAST is given as below:

    <partitioning config:type="list">
    <drive>
    <initialize config:type="boolean">true</initialize>
    <partitions config:type="list">
    <partition>
    <filesystem config:type="symbol">vfat</filesystem>
    <mount>/boot/efi</mount>
    <partition_id config:type="integer">131</partition_id>
    <size>240mb</size>
    <disklabel>gpt</disklabel>
    </partition>
    <partition>
    <filesystem config:type="symbol">swap</filesystem>
    <mount>swap</mount>
    <partition_id config:type="integer">130</partition_id>
    <size>512mb</size>
    </partition>
    <partition>
    <filesystem config:type="symbol">ext3</filesystem>
    <mount>/</mount>
    <partition_id config:type="integer">131</partition_id>
    <size>max</size>
    </partition>
    </partitions>
    <use>free</use>
    </drive>
    </partitioning>

    And my answer (configuration) file I am using as below:

    default=0
    timeout=1
    splashimage=(nd)/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    title Redhat
    root (nd)
    localboot 0
    # The rest of this file is machine-generated

    kernel /suse/suse13.2_x64/linux
    append initrd=/suse/suse13.2_x64/initrd load_ramdisk=1 textmode=1 netdevice=eth0 autoyast=http://192.168.10.5/datastore/00-0C-29-B0-A3-CC install=http://192.168.10.5/datastore/suse/suse12x86_64

    Thanks for solutions.

    Hi
    So your title is Redhat? Your initrd is openSUSE 13.2? and your source is suse12?

    Code:
    default=0
    timeout=1
    splashimage=(nd)/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    title Redhat
    root (nd)
    localboot 0
    # The rest of this file is machine-generated
    
    kernel /suse/suse13.2_x64/linux
    append initrd=/suse/suse13.2_x64/initrd load_ramdisk=1 textmode=1 netdevice=eth0 autoyast=http://192.168.10.5/datastore/00-0C-29-B0-A3-CC install=http://192.168.10.5/datastore/suse/suse12x86_64

    No, Sorry I copied wrong file. Correct Snippet is as below.

    default=0
    timeout=1
    splashimage=(nd)/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    root (nd)
    localboot 0
    # The rest of this file is machine-generated

    kernel /suse/suse12_x64/linux
    append initrd=/suse/suse12_x64/initrd
    load_ramdisk=1 textmode=1 netdevice=eth0 autoyast=http://192.168.10.5/datastore/00-0C-29-B0-A3-CC install=http://192.168.10.5/datastore/suse/suse12x86_64
