Unhappy the very first slackware 10 boot after installation


Hi again Linux gurus,

I have installed the slackware 10 on our office's machine that has LILO on its Master Boot Record (MBR), again...

By the way, before I installed the slackware 10, there was a Redhat 7.2 on the machine, I did not re partitioned the harddrive, I used the redhat partitions, and just formatted those partitioned during the slackware installation.

On its very first boot after the installation... I was surprised when I saw the error messages of the last 2 lines:

"Warning: Unable to open an initial console."
"Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel."

Need your help on this!

Thanks A Lot!

when you installed slack did you choose LILO as the boot manager?
also, is/was there anything else on that disk besides red hat?

Hi finlay!

Thanks for the reply! actually when i installed slackware 10 on that disk, it contained red hat 7.2. I didn't repartitioned the disk, i just formatted it. But the next time i tried, I deleted all partitions on my disk and created new partitions, there, it worked, it booted properly!

Thanks a lot!
