Im trying to use mondo backup to backup a CentOS5 machine and restore to VMWare esxi4.
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

I have access to the original machine and can retake the backup.
