Red Hat 4.3 kernel panic


We just installed a Red Hat 4.3 image from a DELL model T5400 Dual Core workstation onto a T5500 Quad core workstation and get the following kernel panic.

Booting the Kernel

Red Hat nash version 4.2.1.6 starting

Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while…

No volume groups found

Unable to find volume group “VolGroup00”

Error: /bin/lvm exited abnormally! (pid 314)

Mount: error 6 mounting ext 3

Mount: error 2 mounting none

Switch root: mount failed: 22

Umount /initrd/dev failed: 2

Kernel Panic – not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

That'll do it. For starters, was it working properly on the original (image source) machine? What did you use to do the imaging?

As for possible recovery, you may want to begin by booting from a live cd that supports LVM (Fedora Live does, for instance), and posting the output of:
  • # fdisk -l
  • # pvdisplay

(put the output in code tags, please)

The hard drive works in a DELL T5400. The error occurs when the drive moved to a DELL model T5500.
