Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 486702
initrd fails to mount real root fs, thus boot fails

kernel messages during boot with acpi=off
Description of problem:
During boot initrd stuff fails to mount real root filesystem,
causing subsequent kernel panic.
The acpi=off works around the bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
and a couple of earlier, IIRC
Steps to Reproduce:
I've attached kernel boot log for acpi=off case.
I've had no facilities to catch the messages for the case without acpi=off
(kernel panics far before syslog starts).
Is it possible to add a number of attachments to one bug report?
Looks like I have to add more comments in order to attach outputs of
`lcpsi -v' and /proc/cpuinfo. :(

I see this same problem, but just with 126.96.36.199-78.2.23.fc9.i686.
188.8.131.52-78.2.8.fc9.i686 works just nicely.

lspci -vv output
Can you try replacing 'quiet' with 'vga=792 ignore_loglevel" in the kernel boot options, take a picture of the screen with a camera when it fails, and attach that?
Also, try replacing 'acpi=off' with 'scsi_mod.scan=sync' and see if that works too.

To my great regret this is the best quality I've manage to get
(shooting conditions has been rather poor). :(

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
