Description Jeff Lacki 2007-02-24 09:37:30 UTC
Description of problem:

I got a new motherboard and cpu (Intel DG965WH w/Intel CPU Pentium D 820 
2.8Ghz dual core).
I took a working fed 6 HD and stuck it in and it wont boot, it 
complains during bootup saying: 

Red Hat nash version starting 
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root' 
setuproot: moving /dev failed: no such file or directory 
setuproot: error mounting /proc: no such file or directory 
setuproot: error mounting /sys: no such file or directory 
switchroot: mount failed: no such file or directory 
kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init! 

then it freezes. 

I took same working disk and put it in my windows box (switching out 
the HD temporarily) and it boots and works just fine (its an older 

I thought Id try to use the fedora 6 rescue disk and see if it might 
correct itself (even though nothing seems to legitimately be wrong 
with it). 
Now it boots up the fedora rescue and I go through the menus.  Just 
the language -> keyboard type -> I get to the menu that says: 

Rescue Method 

What type of media contains the rescue image? 
Local CDROM 
Hard Disk 
Floppy Drive 

When I select CDROM (duh, I just boot from there), it says: 

unable to find any devices of the type 
needed for this install type. 
Would you like to manually select your 
driver or use a driver disk? 

OPTIONS: Select Driver    Use Driver Disk 

I have the latest BIOS from Intel on the board (I updated it
to be sure it wasnt a bios issue, version 1-17-2007 1618).
I believe its a supplied driver in the kernel?  However Im unsure.

If need more info, let me know.
I marked this urgent because I do need a solution ASAP to use this investment.

You're going to have to go into rescue mode, chroot into /mnt/sysimage, update
/etc/modprobe.conf and then re-run mkinitrd
