FAQ
Hello,

Just upgrade to 6.2 but have not been able to run a newer kernel than
2.6.32-131.12.1.el6.x86_64.

I'm getting the error at boot, Not syncing: VFS Unable to mount root fs on
unknown-block(0,0)

I have google this error and see a lot of the same but no clear answers.

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

-Eddie

    Have you read this? Somebody file a bug report about the same error
    as yours, and it turned out the error was caused by a missing

    initramfs. this may also be your case? issuing*dracut*creates it.

    Yes, I saw that but was afraid to run that because I don't know what it
    does.

    Was using a ramdisk for /tmp. Removed it from fstab and re-installed the new
    kernel.
