Did you just select a different kernel at the grub prompt and then succeed ?
If so I'd suggest you use yum and erase the newer kernel and re-install it.
You'll probably get the same result, but it's just possible that the new initrd wasn't
Can you explain the "usb" message ? Are you using a usb drive ?
I have the same problem as "sergiorosales". Running Fed8 on a desktop updatingto latest kernel -> from 22.214.171.124-92.fc8 -> 126.96.36.199-10.fc8. The USB message is only a symptom. In my case it's a scanner. I unplug it and that message goes away, but still fails as seriorosales points out. I can still boot the old kernel. Have already used yum to uninstall new kernel, then downloaded it again via the automatic update facility (pirute?). Same problem - panic before the console finishes loading. No LVM here. fed8 is (hd1,1). Through grub> during boot, no problems setting root, kernel, or initrd. But after typing boot, -->>
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc/: No such file or directory
Have twice run "e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sdb2" w/ no surprises.
Any help, suggestions, ideas greatly appreciated!!
ps: upgraded kernel of another desktop fed8 (same mobo, cpu, ram, video card) and biggest problem was getting NVIDIA running again. No kernel problems.
Thanks for any ideas or leads.
