    Mandriva 2005 limited edition problems


    I partitioned my HDD and installed Mandriva

    New Compaq laptop with AMD 64 turion chip

    everything moves along fine on boot-up screen until I
    get this: (there's more stuff that preceeds this...but I copied the following lines where apparently things begin to run amok.

    Kernal panic - not syncing: No init found.
    Try passing init=option to kernal

    Then the system just locks up.

    It seems your OS is seriously damaged. Kernel panic that means. Try to reinstall Mandriva and prefer reiser fs than ext3 for the root filesystem.
