kernel panic not sycning no init found try passing a init= option to the kernel?


This is initial boot after installing Slitaz-cooking to hda1..

root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25.5-slitaz root=/dev/hda1

So, what should I do??
Install went fine, grub installed correctly; what gives?
Thanks

Exact error message? And busybox will be there, and it'll not boot into it after a kernel panic. (Saying that, you'd struggle to install even if it wasn't)

You could try dropping it into another runlevel though, that may help.
