Ubuntu 18.04 drops to initramfs when installed in legacy mode in Lenovo SR650

Asked by Everest on 2018-07-10

I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 18.04 in legacy mode in Lenovo SR650 Server. If I only insert 1 harddisk during installation and do the installation everything works fine but when all the disks are inserted the OS doesn't boot. When I try installing the Ubuntu Server 18.04 with all 16 disks inserted, installation completes successfully but later I am dropped to initramfs during reboot. How do I fix it?

Can you chroot to the installed OS and get updates and fix GRUB there?

Yes I can. Is this a know bug and needs an update to kernel or grub?

Not sure but I suggest you report one.

Can you help with this problem?
