[RESOLVED] centos 6.2 live wont boot
Posted by hoodcanaljim on 2012/3/1 4:53:22
Trying ot recover a Dell gx620 that has died. It has winxp loaded and wont boot suggesting that the r option be used when booted from the installation cd.
Booting from the centos6.2 live cd gets the following
Kernel panic – not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown -block(0,0)
A very similar error is output by puppy linux lupu.
Anyone have an idea what is causing this error??
Thanks for your time

Well to finish this off. While trying to get this to boot up it got to the point where it would not even boot to the bios. At a tech's suggestion I removed all hard drives and tried again. And with a new hard drive I was able to reload her operating system.
It appears the problem was caused by a Virus.
