I am trying to use PXE/kickstart to load FC7 on an appliance. My
initrd.img and vmlinuz are from FC7 and are loading but my console
output looks like the following:
<big snip />
Switching to new root and running init.
umounting old /dev
umounting old /proc
umounting old /sys
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
Booting has failed.
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Any and all thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
I'll take a stab at it.
I nfs install f7 using pxeboot and kickstart. I seem to remember
struggling with something similar. It turned out that in the pxeboot
stanza I had broken the APPEND line using "\". Big no-no. The "\" is
for readability. The APPEND line and all its options must be on a
single line. Once I'd done that it worked correctly.
If that doesn't solve the problem would you post your pxeboot stanza?
Might be a clue there.
