F12 Install: Ramdisk: Incomplete write

view full story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – So after deciding to upgrade the existing fedora install on my laptop from 11 to 12, I decided to use the preupgrade method. After grappling with the boot space issue by clearing out an old kernel that was deemed safe to remove by the python script on the preconfig wiki page and then using tune2fs, I left the computer to do it's thing, periodically checking back on it. I come back to my computer, and after an apparent restart I see this message spat out at me: Code: ramdisk: incomplete write (3537 ! 5123) write error kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0) I need this laptop up and running for tomorrow and I would appreciate any help given. I have a Fedora 11 live CD running on the laptop and there seems to be an extra 210 filesystem present with the folders efi, grub, lost+found in there, as well as some config files, elf-memtest86+-400, what seems to be .img file amongst other things. If necessary, I can provide a screenshot. Again, any help is much appreciated (HowTos)
