    Kernel - ERROR while compile

    Hi, I have completed the process of kernel compiling, reboot the system and when I select de new kernel at grub's menu screen something goes wonrg. The kernel never starts and I get this error (look at the screenshot in attachment).
    I wrote a .txt file with all the command line instructions that I used to compile the kernel from source. Hope you can help me.
    Thanks a lot!

    #Update the boot loader and reboot the system
    You don't need to do the above steps. make install automatically updates grub menu.

    Try edit grub's menu at boot and add root=/dev/sda1 as boot option. Not sure you'll get a running kernel. If so, just run make install again.
    0 + 1 = 1 != 2 <> 3 != 4 ...
    Until the camel can pass though the eye of the needle.

    Thanks for your help nmset!
    I made this compilation process on a virtual machine (with both vmware & virtualbox). Later I did the exact steps in a real machine. I tested two stable kernels ( & latest With the first one everything went perfect. But with the second one the compilation was unsuccessful. I got an "error 15: file not found". I supposed that this is some versionīs error because the compilation process is correct. Thanks a lot for your help!
