Re: [Xen-users] Xen reboots

Quoting Tulasi <kuzum@xxxxxxxxxx>:
non of the kernels seems to understand my nVidia Sata controller:

Cannot open root device "md2" or unknown block(0,0)
please append a correct "root=" boot option
kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on

Are you sure it's the nVidia controller that is the culprit, and
not the md driver? It could be that the md driver is compiled as
a module, in which case you need to create a initrd image.

Since your using raid1, you should be able to boot from one of
the disks that make up the raid volume. If /dev/md2 is composed
of /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2 (example), then change the argumentline
to root=/dev/sda2

If you can boot with root=/dev/sda2 then it's not a controller problem.

Good luck, Peter
