Switching Hard Drive Causes Kernel Panic
I had an old Dell Precision 470 with 2 hard drives, a 250GB boot drive with Red Hat installed, and a 500GB hard drive with data on it. Both of these are SATA. The computer died and I have replaced it with a Dell T3500. I was hoping just to move the hard drives into this computer and let generic drivers take over until I make the necessary changes. Unfortunately, I get the following kernel panic message after POST:
VFS: Cannot open root device "Volume00/root" or 00:00
Please append a correct "root= " boot option
Right now the arguments to boot from the hard drive are:
ro root=/dev/Volume00/root hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi
I don't know if this is enough information or not to help me, but does anyone have any ideas?
