Install crash - "kernel panic"
I'm trying to install FC4 on a Dell laptop. I have used this same media to install to a generic x86 desktop with no issues, however when I attempt to boot the first disk on the laptop it says,
switch root mount failed /22
Kernel Panic not synching : Attempting to kill INIT
I've searched all over and this seems to be a pretty common error but all the examples I've found are post install. What could be causing this on a first boot from an install CD?
I'm not sure how the drive is partitioned as I just got it, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was a single NTFS partition. Could this be the problem? I'm not sure how I could delete it if I can't boot it to a CD.
