kernel panic


Hello!
I installed the slackware 9.0( not really sucsesfully because it did not want to boot from mbr)
After installing the disto i reralized that i need to increase / partition and tried to do it by rewriting partiition table. I changed the partiton type from fat32 to linux. Pushed w (in fdisk) and exited, then rebooted. Booted through linux floppy disk( rescue ). It told me something like.
Kernel panic
ni idle task - not syncing or something. Than i tried to boot from the install cd(slack 9.0) and get the same. Then tried redhat 9.0 and another time the same. Finnally itried the win2000 ibstall disk(bootable) and get machine rebooted automaticaly after minute or something.
So for now i could not do any thing whith my box. This messages im typung from my second comp - laptop.
The specification of the hard disk is maxtor 40GB 7200 and the box is P4 2.4 400MHz ddr 256 266Mhz cdromX52 i 845G chipset whith lan video and sound onboard.
WHat i supposed to do?
Thanks to all.

if you rewrote the partition table *after* you installed the OS, you fragged your partition. you can't do that. you need to start over and reinstall with the correct partiton sizes and types, then *leave those alone* after you install.

you should be able to boot from the CD, as that has nothing to do with the hard disk. are you sure your BIOS is setup to boot from CD *first?*

OK i succesed to boot normally. So what neede to be done for boot nornnaly after such kind of thing.
I did it so. Taking out the supply cable and the cmos battery for about 10 minutes maybe more. After that turning all the stuff on and all boots as desired.
Maybe it is relevenat only to i845G chipsets

it sounds like your BIOS settings were messed up, and resetting the CMOS fixed them. i'm surprised your partition is okay, but if it's working now, just go with it, no need to do anything.

happy hanukkah
