Linux XP not working
Okay, I just recently purchased a laptop from ebay and turned it on, and I get the following errors:
ACPI: BIOS age (2000) fails cutoff (2001), acpi=force is required to enable ACPI
Invalid compressed format (err=2)
Kernal Panic- not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Any idea's on what might be causing this?
Sounds like some modules that don't get loaded after someone tried to build a kernel. That VFS error is normally caused because a user didn't build a new initrd or didn't specify it in the systems /boot/grub/grub.conf file.
I would download a new distro and install from scratch.
