Description of problem:
Fedora 23 alpha used to boot fine in VMware Fusion 8, but since updating to kernel 4.2.0-1 it gives me a kernel panic. Selecting the older 4.2.0rc-* kernels still boots.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 23 alpha in VMware Fusion 8
2. Update it to current
3. boot it with kernel 4.2.0-1
* kernel panic, "VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)"
* successful boot
VM is using latest VMware virtual hardware version (level 12)
Can't reproduce on a fresh install with fresh updates; presuming something went awry during intermediate upgrades from the earlier alpha. Whee! Closing out.
