I’ve seen this issue on about 15 different servers now. Anybody else seeing this?

I also have a video of the boot process if that will be helpful.

  • Are you missing the initrd line in /boot/grub/menu.lst? That’s a known bug that I believe has been fixed with 3.18.25-something.

  • “Can’t find rootfs” is most likely the missing initrd bug, which is fixed in CentOS-release-xen-7-12 or later.

    You can:

    1. Manually add the initrd line to the xen stanza in /boot/grub/menu.lst, or

    2. Upgrade to CentOS-release-xen-7-12 or later, and then

    2a. Run grub-bootxen.sh manually, or

    2b. Update the kernel (which will cause grub-bootxen.sh to be run automatically).

    Peace,
