Kernel Panic not syncing: IO APIC+timer dos'nt work!


After searching other similar posts I have not found an answer. I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.4.1 after reformatting the computer from the previous Ubuntu Edgy. When rebooting get this msg (in title). I used the live CD to get into the grub files to see if I could ad 'noacip' option. But was looking for 'menu lst' file and found none. Currently when I boot I don't get any menu list and therefore no options at the bottom. Should be an easy problem to resolve, I think!

You should be able to add this at boot. When grub comes up select your kernel and press "E" to edit, add your option and press "B" to boot.

The problem is that there is no selection menu. The screen brings up only the Kernel Panic msg. I can get into BIOS, though, but that doesn't help, unless there is a setting there that might fix the problem. But I have already checked it, and it all worked great unitl I reformatted and installed Lucid. There is no other OS on this computer (not dual boot w/ Windows). I can boot with the live CD but don't know if I can make any changes from there.

In that case boot your live CD, open a terminal and mount your root partition(/dev/sda1 in the example). Hopefully this helps.

Example:
Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/foo
vi /mnt/foo/boot/grub/menu.lst

Example:
Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/foo
vi /mnt/foo/boot/grub/menu.lst
The file system appears to be already mounted on the desktop in live CD boot. And when I open the GUI folder boot/grub there is no menu.lst file present. Then I used the terminal with the following commands and responses. (The following is not copied but hand typed)

root@ubuntu:~# mount /dev/sda1
mount: /dev/sda1 already mounted or /media/241607e7-4e3e........busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is already mounted on /meda/241607e7

root@ubuntu:~# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/foo
mount: mount point /mnt/foo does not exist


root@ubuntu:~# vi /mnt/foo/boot/grub/menu.lst
-
-
-
"mnt/foo/grub/menu.lst" [new directory]

What I get from all this is that the menu.lst did not install?

Interesting... could you post the output of "fdisk -l"?

(sorry format problems)

I'm thinking of reinstalling and pay attention to the grub and where it installs supposed to be hd0 or sd0 and see if the installation has a tag for noacip selection. Maybe that will quickly resolve this. I'll have to find the installation tut for this and see.

This was very helpful. I'm up and installed with dual boot win xp this time. I havn't configured the grub 2 file for noapic yet, but it looks simple enough.
