booting Linux from external USB 2.0 device
I had a 40 gig internal IDE harddrive that was fully configured with Fedora Core 2. However, I took that harddrive out and converted it into a external usb 2.0 device.
I installed a fresh 160gig IDE harddrive and it has windows xp on it.
I want to be able to boot into linux if i tell my bios to boot from USB HDD, this works up to the point of the Grub bootloader, but when i select my linux kernel i get a kernal panic... maybe the USB HD is still pointing to itself as it it were an internal IDE?
here's the error i get after i select the kernel from GRUB:
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booing the kernel.
Red Hat nash version 3.5.22 starting
mkrootdev: label / not found
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot, /sysroot/intrd) failed: 2
umount /initrd/proc failed: 2
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel
and here's the config i have for grub:
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
any ideas? thanks.
