Kernel panic during install, please help!!


I am trying to install Mandriva 2005LE on an HP dc7100. When the install runs, it comes up with a "kernel panic - not syncing:attempted to kill init!". I have tried running as text only and with acpi=off.

Fedora, Gentoo, Debian all either install fine or start to install. I just loaded some up to see if I could test it.

I know its not the DVD because I tested it on another machine and it worked fine.

Any thoughts would be a great help

I would try to disable stuff on the boot prompt, as much as I could.
Maybe F1 can give you info on this.
Try
