I've installed Fedora 10 on the third partition of an external HDD.
It has with the following partitions:
(hd0,0) - GRUB bootloader files [PRIMARY]
(hd0,1) - Chainload LILO for another Linux [PRIMARY]
(hd0,2) - Fedora 10, no LVM or Swap (labeled F10) [PRIMARY]
I'm trying to boot Fedora 10 using the following grub.conf:
title Fedora 10
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-117.fc10.i686 ro root=/dev/sda3 rhgb
And About halfway through the graphical loading screen:
Activating logical volumes
Volume group "VolGroup00" not found
Unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01)
Creating root device.
Mounting root filesystem.
mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: No such file or directory.
1. Fedora thinks it needs to look for LVM, and there is none. Is there any way to specify that there is no LVM?
2. Fedora looks for a "resume device" which seems to be the swap partition on a default install. Is there a way to specify that there is no swap partition?
3. Why does Fedora try to mount /dev/root when it is specified that root=/dev/sda3?
I suspected the problem to be the "root=/dev/sda3", so I tried other alternatives with no success:
Thanks in advance.
