Then the machine froze.
I have the same problem!
If you solved your problem, please post!!
The original system was upgraded from FC3 to F7, and it was very slow, so I had to move hard disk to a faster machine, and got exactly the same panic screen.
Do I have to reconfig kernel?
Could this be hardware dependent?
The original system is custom built machine
CPU - Celeron 700Mhz, 768MB memory
IDE bus - disk is set to single disk
The new system is Dell GX260
CPU - P4 2GHz, 512 MB memory
IDE bus - disk is set to single disk also.
