lspci and dmesg output
I need to see the actual panic messages to diagnose this.
The dmesg you attached is not a fedora kernel, so isn't useful.

dmesg from Fedora kernel (fc6 I believe, since f7 kernels have not really worked since I starting using rawhide)
Here is the Fedora based dmesg output. The 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 kernel was the
only one I had installed that would work for me. (All the others are for F7)

lspci -vv output from Fedora.
Updated lspci output, this time it's from Fedora. Also I would like to add the
Errors and start up. They are:
SCSI Subsystem Initialized
libata version 2.20 loaded
Unable to access resume device (Label=swap- afaaaa98-8)
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 : attempt to kill init!
That's where the boot stops. I hope this is helpful.
that label looks odd, can you paste your /etc/fstab ?

Weird label is the result of a strange naming method of an early live-cd
Is there anything else that is needed from me at this point, or what is the
status of this? (Not to sound impatient, I'm just curious).
Can you post the initrd for the failing install?
I'm sorry, I don't understand. I haven't used the "install" cds only the live
cds. When the live-cd for Fedora 7 failed, I used a Fedora 6 live cd with an
early implementation of the installer (not using anaconda). Once the FC6 system
was installed I upgraded to raw-hide from there. The problems have been the
same. I tried rebuilding the initrd with other modules, but this did not really
What is the status on this?
we really need to see the initrd.img to debug this further.
This is old the problem was fixed already, I though this bug was closed.
