Knoppix3.6 HD install


Recommended Posts

i am trying to install knoppix using the 3.6 CD onto a freshly formatted hdb.

 

i can complete qtparted and the installer. after everything is completed, i reboot.. nomatter which bootloader i use, and even the floppy disk will do the same, i get the same error. it looks like this:

 

initrd_tools: 0.1.73

mount: fs devfs not supported by kernel

unmount: devfs: not mounted

mount: fs devfs not supported by kernel

unmount: devfs: not mounted

pivot_root: no such file or directory

/sbin/init/: 426: cannot open dev/console: no such file

kernel panic: attempting to kill init!

 

i dont quite know what this means, i assume that it cant boot due to the fact that it cant see parts of the disk or the disk itself. also, when i boot up with the CD again, i can not mount the partition with knoppix installed on to it, even using the sudo command. perhapse i have to change all of the permissions on the disk first, but i wouldnt know how to preform a chmod command on a disk that i cant see. please help.

 

cheers
