Install crash - "kernel panic" on Inspiron 8100
Please bear with the newbie. I'm trying to install FedCore4 for the
first time on this laptop, and it's crashing almost immediately.
There are no cards in it or anything. I have used this same media to
install on a generic x86 desktop with no issues, however when I
attempt to boot the first disk on the laptop it says,
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
Error opening /dev/console!!!!:2
switch root mount failed /22
Kernel Panic not synching : Attempting to kill INIT
The ... is where it's scrolling off too fast for me to catch. I'm
not sure how you get around that.
I've tried the common suggestion of using the acpi=off install
directive and it doesn't change the behavior at all. Is there
anything else I can try?
