bio too big device loop


hey,

I compiled the 2.6.3 kernel, moved the bzImage to /boot/vmlinuz and System.map as well
and rebooted. I get the following lines when booting:
Code:
RAMDISK: compressed image found at block 0
RAMDISK: incomplete write (-1 != 32768) 4194304
bio too big device loop7 (2>0)
EXT3-fs: unable to read superblock
bio too big device loop7 (2>0)
EXT2-fs: unable to read superblock
bio too big device loop7 (1>0)
FAT: unable to read boot sector
VFS: cannot open root device "loop7" or loop7
please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on loop7
Does anyone knows what that means and how to solve it? Should I create a new
initrd file?

I'm using Topologi-linux by the way.

thanks

Did you reinstall the bootloader (eg lilo)?

Cos the bootloader needs to know where to load the kernel image from.
