View Full Version : Kernel panic - not syncing with VIA RAID but not using LVM

13th June 2007, 01:40 AM
I know there appears to be lots of threads but they all seem to use LVM of which I am not.

So the main details are
AMD Athlon64 2800
1 GIG ram
MSI motherboard
VIA VT8237 RAID - two 160gb seagate drives striped only
40gig Maxtor PATA drive

Using kernel 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7, this was an upgrade from FC6->FC7, was installed via DVD

Here is the bootup screen

I've tried rebuilding the initrd with mkinitrd and also by hand with no luck. I can't even get it to boot without the RAID either. The rescue disc has no problems booting and can read my drives without any issue.

I have tried the ignore_hpa=1 option with no success. I've been fighting with it for a few days now but no luck....

Would anyone happen to have ideas/suggestions/a fix :)
If you need more info let me know and I'll post it...
