Kernel panic on initial CD boot

Postby frank on Tue Mar 08, 2011 5:03 pm

Hi!

I'm getting a kernel panic when trying to boot the CD from a USB CD Drive.

I'm trying to install engarde-community-3.0.22.i686 on a netbook Compaq CQ-405DX, Intel Atom processor w/1GB RAM
The MD5 checksum matched the checksum on the download page.

Here's the relevant text from the boot process:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Decompresing the kernel... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting EnGarde Secure Linux. Please wait...
ACPI: EC: GPE storm detected, disabling EC GPE
ACPI: [Package] has zero elements (f778k21d8)
cat: /proc/ide/hd*/media: No such file or directory
pivot_root: pivot_root: No such file or directory
mount: Mounting proc on /proc failed: Device or resource busy
exec: 84: /initrd/sbin/init: not found
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My assumption is it's a HW compatibility problem.
If this is not the case, I'd appreciate help resolving the problem.
If it is the case, will there be any enhancements to bring Engarde up to date soon?
It looks like a nice product from the screenshots, but I'd hate to rebuild a kernel to use it.

Cheers,


Frank

Update:

Burned CD's using different CD burning software (Nero, HP)
All CD's burned successfully
Tried the different CDs on two different laptops.
The 2nd laptop is an HP G61-321NR with a 64-bit processor and 4GB of RAM.
The 2nd laptop boot was from its internal CD/DVD burner.

Still the same results as my previous posting.

Any ideas to solve this?

Cheers,


Frank
