Ns7b2/centos installation problem on N36L N40L N54L

I write this post just to warn owners of these small server before installing the ns7b2

not really an NS7 bug, but a Centos bug with HP N36L,N40L, N54L and some others AMD based server…
it’s a bug of the kernel-3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64 shipped with CentOS 7.2.1511 and of course with ns7b2

more info here:

to recap:

  • boot from install dvd/usb
  • from the boot menu (I’ve used Interactive Install) press TAB and add at the end of the line:
    press enter and go on with installation
  • after reboot press the e key on boot menu, and add afterLANG=en_US.UTF8 the same kernel parameter: initcall_blacklist=clocksource_done_booting
    press Ctrl-X to start, go on with normal setup but update the NS/ before reboot… the installation of new kernel will solve the bug.

note: also the kernel-lt-4.4.19-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64 used for nDPI will work without problem
