Kernel panic after moving HD to new hardware

I have a phonesystem, Trixbox, that has a dead mobo.  No way I get a new one in less than a week.

I moved one of the harddrives to a different computer.  Intel motherboard as well but different model and age.

When booting I get a kernel panic.

The original system has 2 harddrive in a software raid1.  I just moved one of the drives.

What additional information do you need to help me?

Why not move both drive? I assume it's giving that error because the boot loader isn't installed on both drives.

There is a Wiki article on the CentOS site that shows how to install the boot loader on the second drive. Scroll down to "Section Two"

in that case possibly switching them the other may boot?  I may try that first.  What Im trying to do is leave one of the drives in tact in case..  I'll probably just image them both before going any further.

Possibly.. worth a shot

other drive does the same thing.  Both drives installed does the same thing.

Right on!
You need to move back to old system and add a driver used by new disk to initrd.
Alternatively practice on some virtualbox or vmware workstation that can change disk driver of same disk.
