raid1 Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
I have trawled through an extensive number of post on quite a few forums without even a step forward with this.
I have a fedora 13_x64 system with software raid1 for /boot and / (md0 and md1 respectively) , swap is not raided.
I was doing an yum update through the software updater in gnome and the system froze.
I had to press reset to get any response from the machine.
Since then I have been getting the kernel panic above just after grub starts fedora.
I tried the previous kernel from the previous update and it has the same error.
Don't know where to go now??
At the worst I am prepared to load OS again but there is still some info and configs that I would like to access from the raid partitions before I go ahead. Is there any way to access these partitions through a live CD or rescue environment?
Is there a method to bring this install back to life?? or am I looking at a reinstall??
I got that error message when initramfs-`uname -r`.fc13.x86_64.img was missing in the
/boot directory (partition).
That happened after a borged kernel upgrade, similar to your upgrade.
Did yours include a kernel upgrade?
Running dracut did help me.
My RAID disk is /dev/md127, boot partition is /dev/md127p1, root is /dev/md127p1.
Are you able to start from CDROM/DVD?
