Pinned topic IBM Linux Installation Tool Kit Booting Error

‏2012-12-27T05:59:08Z |
 Dear All,
I want to install RHEL 6.3 over IBM power server 720 ( 16 Processor, 32 GB RAM, 3 tb HDD ). AIX 6.2 already installed in the system. I am using IBM linux Installation Tool Kit distro. I write it in a DVD. When I boot with it boot prompt shown, after that when it start to load kernel it showing VFS not Mount root kernel panic error.

Any one can help me to resolve the problem.

Thanks & regards
Arindam

     Hi Arindam!
     
    First of all you can try boot the IBM Installation Toolkit with aditional parameters, like:
    boot: linux debug rdinitdebug
     
    These parameters will provide a more verbose output.
     
    Also please can you provide us the following information?
    - md5sum of the image used to write the DVD with the IBM Installation Toolkit;
    - a copy of the terminal output generated when you try to start the process;
    - details about the LPAR configuration (memory, storage);
     
    Thank you,
     
    Fabio

           Arindam,
           
          the picture with the terminal output is too small. I can't identify what is written.
          Please, can you attach a new one? Is it possible to copy the output in a text file? This allows a better analysis.
          Did you try reinstall the system with the parameters I listed before?
           
          Best regards,
