CentOS 4.4 kernel panic during installation


When I try to install CentOS 4.4 on laptop ASUS A4000 it stops in the very beginning with "kernel panic: not syncing" and hangs up. Other systems such as Fedora 5 and NetBSD 3.01 which I tried on the laptop recently didn't have such problems, so I may suppose it's not a hardware issue. Lunix partition is formatted and clean. May be I should to try an earlier version of CentOS and then upgrade it to 4.4?

So I downloaded CentOS 3.8 1of3 CD and booted into it. It went longer than CentOS 4.4, but stopped at the following lines:

ehci-hcd 00:03.3: PCI device 1039:7002
ehci-hcd 00:03.3: irq 5, pci mem e080d000
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
ehci-hcd 00:03.3: BIOS handoff failed (112, 1919991)

At this stage everything hangs up again...

Hi Guys,

I am facing the same problem for my HP Pavilion dv4-1114nr 1.41" Notebook.

It has Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 2.0 GHz 2 Processors. I believe its a 64 bit processor.

I am getting "Kernel Panic - not syncking" when I am trying to Install RHEL 5.2 x86_64 OS

and everytime it says that "The BIOS handoff is falied (BIOS bug)".

Can anyone help me to resolve this issue?

Thanks,

Mansur.

Just to add on...

CentOS does the same thing whenever I try to install it in a QEMU Virtual Machine.
