Post the exact message before the kernel panic.

You need to know more about boot time kernel parameters.
(Do a google search on that)

Maybe the driver for your SATA drive is not loaded?

What type of PC hardware do you have?

How about some useful information? What does it panic on? What kind of hardware are you using? Have you tried any other Linux distros?
