Description Bryan 2007-04-27 08:30:21 EDT
Description of problem:
After selecting boot from IMG, Install stops with a message that it cannot find
the root filesystem. Brings up another message - please create a symlink for
/dev/root and exit to continue. At the prompt, after trying to create the
symlink, it says filesystem already created, trying to exit does nothing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F7 T4

Additional info:
AMD Sempron 3100
NForce3 motherboard
Gforce 6200
CD/DVD rw drive
Liteon DVDRW

As a side note the - DVD ISO installed fine.

From the installed system, can you provide the output of dmesg, lspci and lsmod?

Comment 3 Joseph Shraibman 2007-05-08 19:57:11 EDT
I got this when booting from an iso inside a xen full virtual guest on an fc6
machine, but booting from the dvd worked fine on the same machine.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-14 11:57:04 EDT
Does this happen every time?  Can you look from the shell you get dropped into
to see if:
1) Does /sys/block/sr0 exist?
2) Is sr_mod loaded?
