Hi to all.

I'm installed XEN3.1 correctly but I'm some problem to start it. XEN start but I received this message:

VFS: Cannot open root device "hda5" 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)

This is strange because my grub is configured like this:

 title XEN3.1-2.6.18
 #root (hd0,4)
 kernel (hd0,4)/boot/xen-3.1.gz dom0_mem=262144
 module (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen root=/dev/hda5 ro console=tty0

I say "strange" because I have a slack partition (is logical partition) that start well and is configured like this:

 title Slack-
 root (hd0,4)
 kernel (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinuz-huge- root=/dev/hda5 ro vga=773

XEN kernel is installed under this slack partition, so root option is correctly.

You can help me?


Best Regards
