Kernel Panic: CPU context corrupt


When I boot from the Red Hat 7.1 boot image. I get the following error: "Bank 4: f2000000000<0>kernel panic: CPU context corrupt". Having a copy of RH5.2, I decided to try it. Using its boot image, I received no errors at all and the installation program started fine! Could someone explain to me why I can't boot from the 7.1 image, but I can from the 5.2 image? Also, how can I fix the 7.1 image so that I can boot from it? Please Help!

What's your hardware? Redhat's stock kernels are moving with the times, so their install kernel probably wasn't compiled with some parameter that your machine needs for it to boot right.
