Upgrading FC3 to CentOS


Hi,

We are trying to upgrade the existing Hardware running on the Fedora 3 to CentOS. Here we wanted to do this in our customers place, this we want to do as remote operation rather doing a manual installation. As part of this experimentation, we have created the image of the complete root filesytem of the CentOS on the same hardware (i.e., tarring the complete /). Untarred this on the FC3 running hardware in particular directory, changed the grub.conf to point to this directory (i.e. for eg. the directory /centos where all the filesytem is untarred).

On boot up I am getting this error

device-mapper: ioctl: 4.11.5-ioctl (2007-12-12) initialised: dm-devel@redhat.com
Loading dm-mirror.ko module
Loading dm-zero.ko module
Loading dm-snapshot.ko module
Waiting for driver initialization.
Scanning and configuring dmraid Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
supported device s
Scanning logi\

My question here is that is this method mentioned above possible?
Any idea of how to fix this kernel panic error.

This has nothing to do with programming. Moved to Linux - Newbie.
