(I'm just bringing this back to the correct thread)
As you suggested I installed with kernel 2.4 and then upgraded to 2.6
When I reboot the kernel 2.6 does not start. With the acpi=off option
the booting stack with the following errors:
pivot_root: No such file or directory
/sbin/init: 424: cannot open dev/console: No such file
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
With google search I found that this problem should due to the SATA
driver, but I don?t know how to solve it.
I also tried changing hdaX with sdaX in grub list and etc/stab but
I can load kernel 2.4, yet.
Any ideas to solve this problem?
