this is nearly always a broken initrd.  What kind of disk controller is the root filesystem on?
Comment 2 Jacques Rodary 2008-11-27 00:05:50 EST
SCSI controller- LSI 53C 1010 R 64-bit/66MHz
Comment 3 Jacques Rodary 2008-11-27 00:18:57 EST
and  the SCSI BIOS is Symbios SDMS version 4.0
Comment 4 Tim Fenn 2008-12-03 22:27:17 EST
Try booting to rescue mode, chrooting to the sysimage and running:

mkinitrd -v -f --with=scsi_wait_scan /boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64.img
2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64

(or substitute i686 for x86_64 if necessary)

Comment 6 Jacques Rodary 2008-12-09 18:44:00 EST
New kernel 2.6.27.7-134.fc10 still has the same issue, with the same solution: mkinitrd -v -f --with=scsi_wait_scan /boot/initrd-2.6.27....
