Hi List,
i will boot debian domU, and i became the following errors:
# VFS: Cannot open root device "sda2" or unknown-block(0,0)
# Please append a correct "root=" boot option
# Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
my domU config:
# disk = ["file:/home/xen/vps/v01/hdd.img,sda2,w"]
# root = "/dev/sda2"
The filesystem of the image is ext3.
the /etc/fstab of the Hostsystem (dom0) says:
# /dev/sda2    /                 ext3    ....
# /dev/sda1    none              swap  ....
mhh, i have no idea where the problem is :)
The Xen Kernel is Dom0 and DomU in one and dom0 is
running fine.
Have anybody an Idea?
Many thanks!
