So I updated my guest from 5.1 to 5.8 via a complete yum update, many many packages BTW.

I shutdown the guest, change its “Disk bus” from IDE to Virtio and then upon boot, I get kernel panics as no disk can be found. I do get the splash screen at first however.

My guest has /dev/hda, should I change its fstab to reflect /dev/vda instead?

Thans in advance,

  • Hi,

    I know you mentioned the labels before. They currently have labels so I will initrd it with the argument, thanks for that.

  • Hi,

    That didn’t work.

    I did mkinitrd –with virtio_blk initrd-2.6.18-308.4.1.el5.img 2.6.8-308.4.1.el5

    It boots fine as long as I leave the dik bus at IDE.

    I even changed the fstab to use /dev/vda# rather then the labels.
