This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Is this bug still present in the final release?

I am not sure if this is the correct place to report, but here goes:

I have posted a message on https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2008-November/msg03083.html

Background: PC is Dell Optiplex 740, AMD Athlon X2 5200+, 5GB RAM (2GBx2 + 512MBx2), 250GBx2 SATA hard disks.

On starting x86_64 (DVD or netinst CD), I get the following lines at the end
--- start kernel panic message lines
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
EXT3-fs: unable to read superblock
isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=md2, iso_blknum=16, block=32
List of all partitions:
No filesystem could mount root, tried: ext3 iso9660

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(9,2)

--- end kernel panic message lines

The result is the same whether I keep one or more of the memory sticks out of the machine. Currently, the machine is running Fedora 9 x86_64 just fine. Fedora 10 DVD i386 installs just fine.

I am new to the bugzilla system and was confused while trying to open a new bug. This bug came the closest to my case. Please feel free to reassign.

@Chuck Ebbert no, this bug is not present in final release. You can close the bug (but I guess you need to open new one for Nandan Bhat's report).
