please append a correct root= boot option HELP! cant boot up linux server!
Posted on 2015-01-06
i have a server that im trying to boot up, but lots of things were done wrong prior to me trying to fix it.
in a nutshell, the server crashed because the power supply went bad.
a tech then started pulling out hard drives during troubleshooting, and i think it broke the raid array (onboard raid controller, its an HP server, cisco branding)
i was able to reinstall grub, and i get to the grub screen where it asks me to choose an OS, but no matter which one i choose, i get the following error-
VFS: cannot open root device "LABEL=/" or 00:00
please append a correct root= boot option
kernel panic: vfs: unable to mount root fs on 00:00
when i reinstalled grub i saw that there were 2 separate hard drives (HDA and HDB). not sure if this should be SDA and SDB, or vice versa?
any ideas? need to get this up and running!!!
