The precise error is: "can't find /mnt in /etc/fstab. ERROR: no /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted!). Trouble ahead."

Then Kernel Panic and restart...seems to be XEN can't mount my /dev/hda5 partition...

TNX Tim! I try to create a initrd like this command: mkinitrd -v -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod -o initrd-2.6.18-xen.img -m 2.6.18-xen Now seems to be XEN start but after memory message and little count down I received another error about "/etc/fstab file not found" and "no /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mouted!)". I can't past precise error because xen reboot system...argh...I think that initrd is bad builded!! You have any idea? initrd bad sure....How I can create one correctly? You think that I can use a prebuilded kernel? TNX again for

Can you post your kernel's .config? I think you must have support for
ext3 as modular, and you forgot to include the module 'ext3' in your
initrd, however I can't be sure without looking at it.

Try booting to a non-xen kernel and upload your config somewhere that we
can see it with a browser or wget, please don't post it to the list as
my mail client will just clobber it :)
