Error booting a 3Node: "no disks: registration failed"

Error booting a 3Node: “no disks: registration failed”

There can be many different fixes for this error. Here are some troubleshooting tips to test separately:

  • In BIOS, enable AHCI
  • Make sure to wipe the disks of the 3Nodes
  • If the 3Node has a RAID Controller:
    • Disabled the RAID controller, OR;
    • Flash the RAID controller (i.e. crossflashing), OR;
    • Change the controller to a Dell H310 controller (for Dell servers)
  • Try the command badblocks (replace sda with the specific disk). Note that this command will delete all the data on the disk
    • sudo badblocks -svw -b 512 -t 0x00 /dev/sda
