Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21333
Can't boot after upgrade (6.1->7.0) with Solaris x86 partitions
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I had Solaris x86 (Solaris 8) and RH 6.1 installed. Upgraded to RH 7 and
now, during boot I get:
Invalid session number or type of track
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:07
If I change the partition types of the Solaris x86 partitions to something
besides 0x82 (tried 0xA1), Linux boots fine. I assume that Linux is trying
to use the Solaris x86 partitions, even though /etc/fstab has no mention of
System is a Dell PII 450Mhz with 128Mb RAM. Solaris is over the default
IDE disk and a SCSI disk, using an Adaptec 2940W controller. Linux is only
on the IDE disk. Win98 is also on the IDE disk.
Passing to QA to reproduce.
this is a known issue, and is on the feature request list for future releases
... thanks for your report!
