RHEL Desktop 5.1 i386



Hello Every one,

I tried to install RHEL Desktop 5.1 i386 on Acer 4520 Laptop
Kernel : 2.6.18.56.el5


Configuration :

Nvidia GeForce 7000M / NForce 610
AMD Turion 64 X2 TK55 @ 1.8Ghz
160 GB Toshiba SATA HDD
2 GB RAM [256 MB shared for graphics]


I did a clean install by formatting the hard drive.
/dev/sda1           /boot     100 MB
/dev/sda2           swap     2000 MB
/dev/sda3           /            Remaining

All primary partitions.
[No volume groups]

*The installation goes fine Until the system restarts.*

Later i did "linux rescue" and "chrooted to my disk"to to find that its
installed properly.
The only issue now is correct kernel boot parameters or reinstalling the
"initrd."


This is the error message i get :
Unable to access resume device LABEL=SWAP  /dev/sda2   .........
Unable to mount  .................................
...........................................................
coild not find filesytem '/dev/root'
kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!



Later i tried a clean install with default layout also [With volume groups]
Now the error is :
volume group VolGroup00 not found
unable to acess resume device (/dev/volgroup00/logvol01)
..........................
Kernel Panic - not syncing, attempting to kill init!





*My guess is its unable to load SATA modules.  But i am wondering since it
recognized the hard drive during the installation.
When i boot from the media, it says ...... "loading SCSI drivers ....   AHCI
"    but not SATA
Centos 5.0 on the other hand loads both SATA and AHCI  / IDE drivers .
Centos 5.0 installs and runs fine.
*
*In BIOS i chose "SATA Emulation mode :" as "IDE mode" the first time and
"AHCI" mode the second time and reinstalled [clean install]*


*RHEL 5.1 x86 is running fine on my PC.*
I am able to install and run other distros like Centos 5.0 / Knoppix 5.1 on
my laptop just fine .

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks a ton in advance.

Regards,
Javesh
