x64 Linux Mint 5 "Kernel panic - not syncing"

Postby ilovemy_e34 on Mon Sep 29, 2008 12:29 pm

Hello,
I am a total newbie on this board but I am having a problem and I could not find a solution. Here is the message I get while trying to boot the CD. Any thoughts?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
38.285692 Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

Kernel alive
kernel direct mapping tables up to 100000000 @ 8000-d000
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am running an Asus M50sv-a1
core 2 duo 2.5
3 gb ram
250GB WD hard drive
nvidia 9500

The iso I used was x64 RC1. I am installing a dual boot Vista/Linux on the same hard drive on the second partition that is 80GB. Also burned the iso at 1x speed, though I do not know how to do a hash check...

Look here for troubleshooting the Live CD.
http://linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/Tro ... ur_Live_CD

In Vista I use imageburn and hat it set to automatically verify the CD against the iso.
I use md5summer to check the md5sum of the iso in Vista.

In Linux Mint I use Brasero to verify the CD against the iso.
To check the md5sum you can right click on the file and use Check md5sum.

You could also use the command, in terminal, md5sum FILE_NAME
Example:
Code: Select all
md5sum LinuxMint-5-x64-RC1.iso
You have to be in the same directory as the file for this command to work.
If you aren't in the same directory you have to tell it where the file is.
Example:
Code: Select all
md5sum /home/merlwiz79/Downloads/LinuxMint-5-x64-RC1.iso
