(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 
nothing changes.
I can load kernel 2.4, yet.

Any ideas to solve this problem?
