Kernel Panic & Freezes at Installation. A Problem ! ! !


Hi, Guys, I am back with a new problem after a long time with same hope and trust on you guys

Any way, i come to the point,

A few days back i borrowed my Friend's " Mandriva 2005 x86_64 Limited Edition " DVD of Linux .

I just wanted to give a try to Mandriva too , besides SuSE ( MY FAVORITE ).

BUT IT DISAPPOINTED ME.

HOW ? ? ?

Well,

I Press ENTER , just after i got "Welcome Screen with 2 options"

1st option : " Press F1 for more "

2nd option : " Press Enter to Upgrade or Install."

I press Enter to Install.

Installation begins , but it stuck at very very initial stage at the following

Line .............

>> Kernel Panic. VFS. Mandrake could not Mount root fs on block (8,1)

Progress bar of installation stops here but cursor keep blinking....


but after a minute or more cursor also stop blinking.

WHAT IS WRONG AND WHERE IS WRONG.

I tell you my system configurations..

************************

AMD 64 3000+

MSI RS480-M2 IL MOTHERBOARD WITH ATI RADEON 200 GRAPHICS

160 WESTREN DIGITAL HDD [ IDE ]

1 GB DDR 400 MhZ RAM

***************************

I also like to you that i have Windows XP Home edition installed on the system and xp occupied almost 50% of total HDD capacity.


Thanks & Regards in Advance.............

I could only get Mandriva (or Ubuntu, or Debian) to install on x86_64 by installing with the acpi=off option, otherwise I got a kernel panic - don't remember the actual message though.

Select F1, then type
Code:
linux acpi=off
