    Exclamation [SOLVED] mkrootdev : label / not found


    Running Red Hat ES4


    Hi, have attempted to update the kernal/initrd 2.6.9-78.0.22.EL but am unable to boot the system. Booting an older kernal boots the sytem wihout any issues (2.6.9-67.EL).

    On boot up receive the folloingerror message;

    mkrootdev : label / not found

    A copy of my Grub config is below.

    # grub.conf generated by anaconda
    #
    # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
    # NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
    # all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
    # root (hd0,2)
    # kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda7
    # initrd /initrd-version.img
    #boot=/dev/sda3
    default=0
    timeout=10
