Kernel Panic:VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:03
Posted on 1998-02-14
I have a WDC 2.1GB with WIN95(800M) & Linux(1.2G). I reformatted the DOS partition, created/deleted/messed partitions and finally settled for 800MB PRI-DOS for my WIN95. All this while, I was expecting Linux to stay unaffected since I never even touched it (right ?) but now when I'm done with my WIN setup and tried to boot Linux, I get this error message:
Kernel Panic:VFS:Unable to mount root fs on 03:03
I've a Linux swap on hda2 and Linux native (holds /) on hda3.
I tried rescue boot and was able to mount my DOS partion but can't get /dev/hda3 (or hda2 for that matter) to mount on /mnt.
I'm running RH4.2 with 2.0.30 kernel.
Any help highly appreciated.
