This indicates that the BIOS is not correctly setting up TXT.  Please make sure that you’re using the latest BIOS version.  If you are, or still see the failure after that, send me the platform model information and BIOS version.

Subject: [tboot-devel] generic fatal error

 

Hello

I've been trying to boot my system with tboot, unsuccessfully. I have Ubuntu 10.10 x86_64 version, kernel 2.6.35-25 installed on Fujitsu celsius 380 PC with Intel® Core™ i5-660 processor, with Intel® 345 chipset. 

I got the TPM , VT,VT-d,TXT  enabled in BIOS.

I've installed latest trousers package tpm_tools and taken ownership of my TPM.

I've installed tboot-20101005.tar.gz and I've downloaded i5_i7_DUAL_SINIT_18.BIN from tboot sourceforge site. I am not really sure if this SINIT module the correct one for my chipset.


My menu.lst configuration:

title Ubuntu 10.10, kernel 2.6.35-25-generic w/ Intel(R) Trusted Execution Technology

kernel /boot/tboot.gz logging=serial,vga,memory

module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35-25-generic root=UUID=154e4bc5-aa94-4e1d-9f1c-e6c5cda3ed38 ro quiet splash

module /boot/initrd.img-2.6.35-25-generic

module /boot/i5_i7_DUAL_SINIT_18.BIN

 


The boot hangs on the display where I could see following lines:

TBOOT: Error : write TPM error :0x2.
TBOOT: no policy in TPM NV.
TBOOT: IA32_FEATURE_CONTROL_MSR: 0000ff03
TBOOT: CPU is SMX-capable

TBOOT: SMX is enabled
TBOOT: TXT chipset and all needed capabilities present
TBOOT: TXT.ERRORCODE=0
TBOOT: LT.ESTS=0
TBOOT: IA32_FEATURE_CONTROL_MSR: 0000ff03
TBOOT: CPU is SMX-capable
TBOOT: CPU is VMX-capable
TBOOT: SMX is enabled
TBOOT: TXT chipset and all needed capabilities present
TBOOT: Unsupported BIOS data version(4026589891)
TBOOT: BIOS data specifies too many CPU's (4026597029)
TBOOT: Generic fatal error.
TBOOT: TPM: tpm_validate_locality timeout
TBOOT: shutdown_system() called for shutdown_type: TB_SHUTDOWN_HALT

Every answers and insight would be much appreciated.

Thanks
