My server is running RHEL6.3, and after shutting down, I am unable to boot up the server. I did not perform any upgrades or changes to the server prior to the shut down, and this is a new server without much usage.
I got this error after the grub screen.
i8042.c: Can't read CTR while initializing i8042.
RAMDISK: incomplete write (32543 != 32768)
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Pid: 1, comm: swapper Not tainted 2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64 #1
I am able to boot into Rescue mode, and I followed the instructions on this website
(after changing the name of the initrd), but still get the same error.
What is wrong and what else can I try? If nothing works, I'm going to reinstall the OS.
