I get an error when booting up my fedora core 4.
It is occuring because i upgraded my motherboard.
I only got 1 sata harddisk in this system on sata port 1.
There is also a cd drive and floppy connected.
Ret hat nash version 4.2.15 starting
reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
no volume groups found
unable to find volume group "VolGroup00"

switchroot: mount failed: 22
kernel panic - not syncing attempted to kill init !
Old mobo: a8v deluxe
New mobo: a8n-vm-csm
The pc still works on its old mobo (i put the HD in another pc with that mobo to test this)
It does also NOT work on my own pc: a8n sli (it gives exacly the same error)
On irc people told me it was not properly recognising the sata harddisk (i tried connecting the harddisk to all 4 sata connections..but none worked) The old mobo only had 2 sata connections, this mobo (and my a8n sli) has 4.
On irc i was told i should update my kernel to the latest version to make it recognise sata.
So I put the HD in the other pc with the a8v deluxe, and did yum update & yum update kernel. It was succesfull.
But it is still giving the error.
I hope someone is able to help me.
Thanks for your time
UPDATE AFTER BEING REFERRED TO #FEDORA:
<Madsret> I got problems connecting my sata harddisk to my pc after upgrading the motherboard, hope someone can help me. Details: http://pastebin.ca/41636
<daniel> Madsret: It's a LVM issue
<daniel> Perhaps you're missing the initrd. Did you change the kernel when transfering from working to non-working state?
<Madsret> im not experienced, lvm? i dont think i changed the kernel either
<Madsret> So could it be the initrd?
<ananke> uhmm, it's not lvm issue
<ananke> lvm problem is just an after math of being unable to see the drives/controller
<Madsret> Well it does show the linux bootup menu with all kernels displayed if i press enter..so the hd is properly connected
<ananke> doesn't matter
<ananke> lilo/grub will still load the kernel regardless
<ananke> the kernel/initrd itself doesn't have the drivers for your new mobosata controller
<ananke> sure. redo the initrd/kernel to include support for your new mobo sata controller
<Madsret> alright, how to do that?
<ananke> you boot using the old mobo, then you consult #fedora
