Re: pivot_root: No such file or directory (was: Lots of PREEMPT on 2.6.7-6 and 2.6.7-3. 2.6.8-3 panics before mounting anything.)

I've tried that.
I've tried mkinitrd -r /dev/sdb1 too...

The problem seems to be me having root on a SATA-drive....

My menu.lst-entry is for 2.6.7 (working):

title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.7
root            (hd0,2)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.7 root=/dev/hdg1 ro
initrd          /initrd.img-2.6.7

My menu.lst-entry is for 2.6.8 (non-working):

title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-3-amd64-k8
root            (hd0,2)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.8-3-amd64-k8 root=/dev/sdb1 ro 
initrd          /initrd.img-2.6.8-3-amd64-k8


I have two different /etc/fstab with either hdg and sdb
