Kernel Panic: No init found


Hi!

I have a PC which came preloaded with a messy Thai Linux version (based on RedHat 8) in dual boot with Windoz ME.

I would like to get rid of this Thai Linux version and install RedHat 9.
I tried many possibilities and each time I put RH9 disk one, installation starts and after Anaconda I get the message:

"Kernel panic: No init found. Try pasing init= option kernel"

And it freezees, I can only restat.

Any Help much appreciated.

Thank you

sounds like the boot loader may be linked to the wrong kernel or no kernel at all. Are you using lilo or grub?

Hi!

The preloaded Thai Linux version works with Grub.
I can boot on that linux partition.

The only problem is that I can not replace this version by RH9 or anything else.

When I start installation with the disk, it is ok for a while until the damn message.

Thanks for your help.

Michel

Hi, do you want to keep windoze Me on the disk??
If not, goto bootdisk.com and make a boot floppy and " fdisk C:\ " -- the whole drive from DOS and start over with a clean hard drive.......

Yes, I need to keep Windoze Me because I have some software Iuse on it and also back-ups... and that is the problem.

Any other idea?

Michel
