2. Redhat 7.1 RC 2 install
3. Complete the installation
4. Prompt to create boot disk, eject installation CD and attemp to reboot.
4. Display message:

Code: Bad EIP value
VFS: Cannot open root device"" or 08:41
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:41
1) Ignore the message, power off the server then power back on> seems to
2) Install Redhat 7.1 RC2 WITHOUT the RIB board.
The problem seems to be coming from the megaraid driver in the kernel. It
looks at the Compaq RIB board and thinks it is a storage controller.
Recent kudzu's should prevent the megaraid driver from loading in this case....
Is there any way to verify that this actually works ?
It works with QA0404 > no longer display kernel panic after installation. Did
not work with QA0401.
Please close this issue.
