ACPI error & kernel panic on boot - Fedora 12


I've been working at this for hours searching online, but I'm really stuck. I can really appreciate your help.

I just installed Fedora 12. When I boot, only the following three lines are printed:

pnp 00:09: can't evaluate _CRS: 12298
ACPI: Expecting a [Reference] package element, found type 0
Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I first installed Fedora using a RAID 1 setup that mirrored each partition, so I thought the problem was coming from GRUB and confusion from what to boot off of. However, I reinstalled Fedora using a simple single drive setup (left the second drive without any partition), and the same error was returned.

Is this an ACPI issue with this particular motherboard/BIOS? Any ideas for how I can fix this?

Thanks for your help!!

What do you get when you pass "noacpi" as an argument to the kernel?
