Hi Baldy,

Could you please create another screen shot of the kernel output after removing "quiet" from the grub configuration?

And could you please switch during the installation to the console and post the output from that commands:
kudzu -c HD -p

Btw, mentioned the wrong motherboard. Should be Asus P5GD1-VM/L.

Could you please try to replace your kernel with this one:

rpm -ivh [^] --force

Hi Ra,

Did not work, same problem.

One thing I did notice was that the grub.conf entry is different from the old one.

Kernel and initrd do no longer have /boot in their paths.

root@mail:/boot/grub # cat grub.conf
fallback 1

foreground = 16064e
background = ffffff

Hi Baldy,

could you please provide us the pictures of the problem after removing the "quite" option from the boot?

could I ask to you if you can even take some pictures after inserting "verbose" in place of "quite" in the /boot/grub/grub.conf file?

Thanks in advance

baldy (reporter)

Picture without quiet was already added (Kernel Panic Detailed).

Will try verbose tonight as the system is in use during the day.

Is there an option to pause screen output during boot ?
lorenzo-endian (manager)

Keeping the "Stamp" key pressed during the boot procedure should do the trick.

verbose option does not give any additional information during boot.

I was unable to pause the output, but did make a movie of the boot process.

All text I can see is the following:

Searching the net it appears it is an issue with initrd not using the correct UUID

After rebuilding the 2.4.0 system grub.conf contains a different UUID than the upgraded 2.4.1.

Can this be the cause of the problem ?

2.4.0 grub.conf

It's not possible to keep the current and the new version of kernel during the migration?

Hi Ingwiz,

Your issue is probably the same as [^]

Changed the UUID for testing purpose, but did not work.
