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!
Hi Gary,

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.
Mike Wright :m)
