Re: Unable to boot acrn-3.0 on Intel NUC target

Ameya Palande <2ameya@...>

Hi Nanlin,

Thanks for your quick response!

I have updated the NUC firmware version to PNWHL57v.0047.2022.0330.1436
The grub version is 2.04-1 (which came up with Ubuntu 20.04-4 release).

I am still getting the same error :(
Have attached the new nuc.xml which was collected after upgrading the firmware.

Can you clarify at what memory location grub2 wants to load the acrn.bin and how much free RAM is needed at that location?

Hi, Ameya


It seems there’s no enough space to load acrn.bin, what’s your grub version, and could you upgrade your BIOS version, it is too old (Version: PNWHL57v.0032.2019.1213.1529)



Best wishes!

Subject: [acrn-users] Unable to boot acrn-3.0 on Intel NUC target




I am using the acrn-3.0 release on Intel NUC target. Attached the board and scenario xml with this email. When I try to boot the acrn multiboot2 image using grub2 on the target, I get the following error:


error: out of memory.

error: you need to load the kernel first.


Press any key to continue...



On target, the /boot/grub/grub.cfg contains the following entry:


### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/40_custom ###
menuentry 'ACRN multiboot2 ' --id ACRN_deb_multiboot2 {
    insmod gzio
    insmod part_gpt
    insmod ext2
    search --no-floppy --fs-uuid  --set b84f8f10-cfcf-468b-879e-32c0483ac095
multiboot2 /boot/acrn.MyConfiguration.nuc.bin root=PARTUUID=6a449f7c-56b3-4fa4-b45c-698b3875d201
module2 /boot/vmlinuz-5.10.115-acrn-service-vm Linux_bzImage



Looking for pointers to fix this problem.
