Problems with new install and new motherboard

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am new to Linux and new to this forum. I have been working with a project pc. I have a new HD loaded with Linspire. After loading the o/s I replaced the motherboard and cpu. I now have a Biostar A780L (Didn't see it listed on the HCL) and an AMD Athalon II Multi-Core Processor. Now when the pc boots I get an error: VFS: Cannot open root device "343" or 03:43 Please append a correct "root" boot option Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount the root fs on 03:43 I tried reloading the o/s but the disk won't read from the DVD ROM. Checked my BIOS and it app (HowTos)
