Yeah, I installed my system about a
week ago using the mini.iso off the netinst directory and it worked
like a charm. MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum installing on 2 SATA drives in a
mirrored array. I just wanted to set it up and decide if the AMD64
port works well enough to use as a HTPC. I've decided that it's more
stable that I expected and that there are more 64bit packages than I
know what to do with.
So I wanted to wipe it clean and
redistribute my array to account for some swap space and make it more
redundant. I tried to use the CD that I used before and when it got to
the "downloading stuff" portion of the install it complained that
there weren't and kernel images matching the one I was using.
Something about "it probably won't work if you continue without kernel
sources". Since I didn't want it not to work, I figured better get the
I went and downloaded mini.iso
dated from TODAY, Feb-6th and burned it to a CD (I've learned to start
using RW discs instead of coastering a 4.4MB CDR, only did it once
- thank you) and tried to boot off of it. Same thing as you, I get the
kernel panic: can't mount root fs. I was worried that the
installer didn't know what to do with my raid array so I tried
unplugging the drives so that they aren't even there to see and it
still panic-ed. Must be an issue with the installer.
We'll just have to wait to install
it till they fix the panic, it's worth the wait. I just wish I knew
who needs to know so I could tell them!
