Bootup Itanium (ia64) For Linux Single

Bootup Itanium (ia64) For Linux Single

HP Itanium Server (ia64) is using elilo as the Linux boot loader.


My friend call to help him to reset root password for Linux Centos 4 running on HP Itanium (ia64). We confuse with EFI Boot Manager menu and ELILO menu. We need to issue linux single from elilo boot prompt.

After searching found this HP document


Procedure 5-54 Linux Loader (ELILO.EFI) Booting and Access

Use this procedure to access the ELILO Linux loader.

1. Load the ELILO.EFI Linux loader.

Either select a Linux entry from the EFI Boot Manager menu (the boot options list for the nPartition), or invoke the ELILO.EFI Linux loader from the EFI Shell.

2. Type any key when the "ELILO boot" prompt is displayed to stop the boot process at ELILO.

After you type a key (for example, space) the ELILO loader remains at the "ELILO boot" prompt, rather than loading the default Linux kernel entry in the elilo.conf file.

3. Issue ELILO loader commands or enter the kernel path or label (from the elilo.conf file) that you wish to boot.


Now we can issue

linux single and enter.
