Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Hey, I have a Sony Vaio laptop partitioned three ways - two for windows xp, and one for linux, and I recently downloaded the iso's for Red Hat 9. It starts up just fine, and I choose "start graphical install", and everything goes well until I get this:

crc error<6>Freeing initrd memory: 2460k freed
VFS: Cannot open root device "" or 48:05
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 48:05

So....I don't know what's going on - any suggestions? This ever happen to someone else?

What model number Sony Vaio?

Try pressing F2 and try the install with the noapic and npprobe options...

the command (after pressing F2 is:

linux noprobe noapic
It's the PCG-FRV25
