Install problems, Hard Drive Bad?
VFS: Cannot open root device "<NULL>" or unknown-block(8,5)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,5)
the block locations change with the different root options I try, mostly the locations are 0,0. Also the <NULL> changes to what I try as the option, but you should already know that part.
These are the things that I have tried to do to fix the problem.
I have also tried installing redhat 9.0 and get the same problem.
-Different media disk(s)
-Different CD-ROM drive
Does anyone have any ideas?
There is only one partition on one drive.
