Help!!! <0> kernel panic not syncing : Fatal exception
 
This error occurs when I tried to to install new OS which
is linux CENTOS 5.0 from Fedora. When the CENTOS 5.0 boot screen appears, after I hit <ENTER> this error comes next :

What should be the possible solution for this?
I am asking for this help because I am not familiar in LINUX.
I'll be waiting to all of your ideas. And I will
respect it also. Thanks in advance.

Ok there're tons of things that could be the root of this problem.
But I often recognized that the /etc/fstab and the /boot/grub/menu.lst (or grub.conf) are missunderstanding each other.
It is always in conjunction with "lables" for example.

FSTAB

/=CENTOS /dev/sda1 ext3 defaults
..... and so on. 1st column is a label for the root partition but this isn't known from the grub.conf

So IF YOU KNOW on which Partition the "/" <-- root of your installation is. For e.g. /dev/hda1 (IDE) or /dev/sda1 then
YOU could edit the boot prompt line and tell the loader where to find it's needs...

Well, I never work with labels, but I do with UUIDS, that is pretty similar. GRUB recognizes them, but I'm not sure if it also recognizes LABEL. Also, when GRUB doesn't recognizes the partition, kernel panic isn't the output it gives. It says something like "no kernel in this partition" or similar.

It seems like last error IS significant:
Code:

EIP : [<c041041c>] powernowk8_init+0x1c2 SS : ESP 0068 : c1866fa0
I'm not sure at all, but I think that maybe you're trying to load a bad architecture on your computer. Probably we'll need some more info for helping you:
* Which is your CPU architecture? (i386, AMD64, powerpc...) or which is your CPU? (Pentium 4, Core 2 duo, Celeron, Xeon, ....) and year you bought it?
* Which is the install CD architecture?
* Have you tried an exhaustive memtest on your computer? (memory may be damaged)
* Have you tried some other live distro, as ubuntu or knoppix?

See you here!
