    Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!


    Hi all,

    I try to move my Linux Mandrake 2007.0 on new PC (all devices changed, motherboard, Graphics, Network ...)

    Code:
    Creating root device
    Trying to resume from /dev/sda5
    Unable to access resume device (/dev/sda5)
    Mounting root filesystem /dev/root
    mount: error 6 mounting ext3 flags defaults
    well, retrying without the option flags
    mount: error 6 mounting ext3
    well, retrying read-only without any flag
    mount: error 6 mounting ext3
    Switching to new root
    ERROR opening /dev/console!!!!: 2
    unmounting old /proc
    unmounting old /sys
    switchroot: mount failed 22
    Initrd finished
    Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
    Can you help me ?

    PS :
    By the way, the original disk is larger than new disk but changing type of disk.
    hda to sda (sata)

    Thanks,

    You should have just backed up your home and reinstalled linux on the new machine.

    You need to boot to a rescue environment and salvage the configuration and data files th at you need to an NFS or SMB volume. I suggest you then blow away the system completely. After that is all done carefully start restoring configuration and data, testing thoroughly along the way that nothing is getting broken.
