Description of problem:
I'm trying to install FC4 on a MPC clientpro system (with a SATA root disk) and
receive the following messages during the initrd stage:
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid ramdisk image starting at 0
VFS: cannot open root device "<NULL>" or unknown-block (8,3)
Then kernel panic. I've seen similar issues with FC2 when upgrading a kernel and
not recreating the initrd with these options:
--preload=sd_mod --preload=scsi_mod --with=ata_piix
However, I'm not sure how to rebuild the install cd with an updated initrd to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
You may not be able to reproduce this where you are depending on the type of
systems you have. The FC4 install cd works fine on a gateway system we have also
with a SATA root disk. It may be BIOS/motherboard rev dependant.
Indeed. Most likely the strange workaround in Bug 159026 will allow you to
boot your system. An announcement explaining what happened is forthcoming.
