Unhappy Boot Problem


Hi everyone!
I have a problem. I've installed Linux Mandriva.
But it doesn't boot, in other words the progress bar doesn't proceed.
When I trying to open in failsafe Mod, it gives me the following error:

Mounting root fileSystem/dev/root
mount:error 6 mounting ext3 flags defaults
well, retrying without the option flag
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
well, retrying read-only without any flag
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sys/root,/sys/root/initrd) failed:2
umount /initrd/sys failed:2
umount /initrd/proc failed:2
Initrd finished
Freeing unused kernel memory: 296k freed
Kernel Panic - not syncing: Noinit found. Try Passing
init = option to kernel


Thanks for any help...

(my hhd is sata)

It can't find your root filesystem for some reason. I suspect a problem with detecting your sata drive. If you have access to broadband, try downloading a more recent edition of mandriva; le2006 can be downloaded for free here:

I used Mandrake 10.1 and it did not lead to this kind of problem about Sata HDD.
Mandriva PP is better than Mandrake 10.1 obviously. Is there any probabilty that the problem is related to another problem(For example lilo configuration)?

By the way, Mandriva did my configuration (sound and graphic card options) automatically and I didn't re-adjust them.

Not likely, unless you configured lilo by hand and put the wrong partition for your root partition. Try this. As soon as you see the lilo boot selection screen, hit the Esc key. That will take you to a boot prompt at which you should type:

linux noapic noloapic acpi=off

and hit the Enter key. See if it boots. Those are the most common boot parameters tried when you can't get a system to boot.
