Please Help! Kernel Panic: could not mount root fs on unknown block
Hi, Good Day!
I am currently evaluating RHEL 4, Update 4 on Intel 64bit system. My server has the following specifications:
Intel Core2 E6400/2.13GHz
Intel D946GZIS Motherboard
160GB IDE HDD
I used the default options during installation. I also used the default partitions created by 'autopartioning'.
I have successfully installed RHEL4, however, after rebooting I get this:
Booting 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (2.6.9-42.ELsmp)'
kernel direct mapping tables upto 10100000000 @ 8000-d000
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-42.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/ pci=nommconf rhgb quiet
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size 0x195886]
[Linux-initrd @ 0x37f02000, 0xed992 bytes]
Booting the kernel.
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
I am new with Red Hat and would really like to learn. I have searched the knowledgebase and other forums, but could not find any solution. Can you assist me and tell me what I did wrong? or what I should do? I would appreciate any help that you can give me.
