kernel panic and i cant fix it.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 18, 2004
I installed debian sarge with the newest net install then i downloaded kernel 2.6.7 from kernel.org. I did not install the kernel the debian way, i didnt think it mattered that much. I triple checked that the all the fs were in the kernel. But i keep getting this no matter what i have done.
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda2" or unkown-block (0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: root VFS:Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
The stupid part is hda2 is not on (0,0) its on (0,1), I have looked to see if I have made a mistake some where along the line, and on acident put down (0,0) some where i havent found it yet. I will show you what menu.lst looks like in a sec. Does anyone know how to fix this. Or am i even looking in the right area.
Mint 15: Does 3.8.022 Kernel Fix Kernel Panic Issue with 3.9.019?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2013
Both the new Linux Mint 15 and Ubuntu 13.04 are essentially unusable on my hardware due to kernel panics in the default 3.8.0-19 kernel both distributions use. Crashes happen either attempting to boot the install DVD or at the first boot after the install, and frequently thereafter.
I hear that the 3.8.0-22 kernel fixes this. Is that correct?
Kernel Panic: How To Fix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 18, 2005
The hardware specifications of my computer are:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
DFI Lanparty nF4 Ultra-D
XFX [nVidia] GeForce 6600GT
LSI Logic Ultra320 PCI-X Controller
Maxtor 80GB SATA150 HDD
Seagate Cheetah Ultra320 36.6GB HDD
NEC DVD DL DF Burner
Above, I've posted links to images of my monitor during the boot. They show the same thing, but some may be more legible than others, that is your preference.
I'm switching distros as Gentoo is not the one for me. So, I decided to try Sarge.

What is causing this? How can I fix it?
FC4 install Kernel panic fix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 14, 2005
I found a fix for this elsewhere (credit to schlongsalami) and it worked for me. Hope it works for you.
Boot from FC4 disc 1. Type "mediacheck" you will get an error. Then type "linux mediacheck" and it should continue to install as normal. Good luck.
Tried to preupgrade from F16 to F17 kernel panic... any ideas on how to fix this?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 20, 2012
I got this error on trying to boot into F17:
"Kernel Panic - not synching: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (0,0)"
This is the best I could do to reproduce the text of this error, Linux won't produce a log file of the kernel panic to paste online (why not???)
I have tried the following steps to fix this:
1) I checked /boot/grub2/grub.conf and ensured that the boot UUID for F17 is the same as the previous F16's boot UUID, those are all the same and it worked before.
2) I checked /etc/fstab and nothing has changed there.
3) I went into grub at the boot process and did "ls" and found the partition is on (hd0,msdos5).
ls (hd0,msdos5)/ brought up the filesystem in question.
How do I get the kernel to mount the root fs...? Or have I discovered a completely new and unfixable problem?
Any way to fix this kernel panic?

Here is my env and what happened.
My Host OS : Windows.
My Guest OS : Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit.
I set up Virtual Box(latest version), and installed Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit version...and it worked fine...everything was fine for a couple of month....
However, the problem was that...my laptop just unexpectedly shut down because of battery issue while I was using the Ubuntu Guest OS...
Right after that....when I started my Ubuntu guest OS, most of time worked fine..however, sometimes, intermittently, in booting, I got this error message..
kernel panic – not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work! Boot with apic=debug and send a report. Then try booting with the 'noapic' option.
something I never have seen before....So...I tried couple of things...
1. Reinstalled my kernel --- re-installation was OK..however, this error message still shows up in booting intermittently...
2. I understand that it may(or may not..) work with 'noapic' option (don't know haven't tried yet), but I don'

kernel panic not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 27, 2011
Hola, ayer me pasó algo de lo más extraño. Tengo dos PC con Ubuntu 10.04 enfrentadas que tenían un kit teclado/mouse inalámbrico marca microsoft que se interferían mutuamente.
Cansado de escuchar quejas por ese tema compré un kit genius ps2 y saqué uno de los inalámbricos y puse el kit ps2 todo con la pc encendida. Configuro la distribución del teclado, cierro todos los programas y pongo reiniciar para asegurarme que cuando vuelva a encender la máquina tenga todo configurado correctamente. Para mi sorpresa luego del bip del mother y la pantalla con la el nombre del mother me encuentro con la siguiente leyenda.
kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block (0,0)
Después de un rato de sufrir y evaluar si iba a reinstalar o qué lo solucioné de la siguiente manera. Gracias m4v.
Bootié una live session de 10.04
Abrí una terminal
sudo fdisk -l
Ahí vi que la partición de sistema que bootea era /dev/sda5
sudo mount /dev/sda5
