Description of problem:
Fails to boot after a fresh install of 64 bit version.
AMD 64 X2 4400 on ECS nForce4-A939 Motherboard with 2Gig of RAM. Installing on
IDE hard drive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc6test3 64 bit version
Every time I try to boot, tried re-installing twice, on different hard drives.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fc6test3 64 bit version from dvd
2. fails to boot after installer finishes
(boot log expcerpt)
ACPI Exception:(acpi_processor-0237): AE_NOT_FOUND, Evaluating _PSS
powernow-k8: BIOS error - no PSB or ACPI _PSS objects
ACPI: (supports S0 S3 S4 S5)
md: autodetecting RAID arrays.
md: autorun ...
md: ... autorun DONE.
VFS: Cannot open root device "VolGroup00/LogVol00" or unknown-block(0.0)
please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Please let me know if there are additional tests I can perform to narrow this down.
This now works for me in the FC6 release.
