Problems booting a fresh gentoo install on onboard sata

Postby Stoned » 2004-08-26 15:04

Hi folks i just made a fresh install of gentoo on my epox 8hda amd64 box and i get this error when booting.

Code: Select all
VFS: Cannot open root device "sda3" or unknown-block (0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" option
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (0,0)

I only have 1 sata disk connected and it's on the Sil3114 onboard sata controller.

I use grub as bootloader and it setup like this:

Code: Select all
# Boot automatically after 30 secs.
timeout 30

# By default, boot the first entry.
default 0

# Splash image location

# For booting GNU/Linux
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.8-r2
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.8-gentoo-r2 root=/dev/sda3 vga=795

I checked my kernel and i think i didn't mis anything so if anyone knows what i should do please let me know.

I'm sorry, but these forums are about Debian, not gentoo. See [url][/url] instead.
