    Re-installing Linux-Can't boot up to Installation Screen


    Hello.

    I need to remove and reinstall Linux. I can not seem to get to the Installation Screen because I just upgraded my Motherboard and Linux can't Mount Some things. Any help would be appreciated.

    You should not need to remove Linux to reinstall it. Give me the exact error and where it occurs and I'll try to fix it from there.

    Okay I get this rigth after Grub asks me what I want to boot from:

    kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k block-major-33, errno=2
    mount: error 6 ext3
    privotroot: privot_root (/sysroot/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
    kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

    Looks like your kernel can't find your ide hd's. Make sure they are installed the same way as they previously were.
