I really someone on the forum can help me recover my system.
Virtual machine in VMware ESX
2 50G disks assigned (/dev/sda, and /dev/sdb)
/dev/sda1 has swap
/dev/sda2 has /
/dev/sdb1 has /srv
As soon as the system tries to boot after the grub menu I get “Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)”, followed by several other kernel messages before stopping dead.
I’ve booted into rescue mode from the DVD ISO and found that there isn’t a initrd file – none.
Attempted mounting /dev/sda2 under /mnt and chrooted to see if I could create an initrd file with mkinitrd, but that fails.
I tried following https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/493663-upgrading-12-3-13-1-repo-update-method-now-broken-grub --but with no success.
What other info do ya need?
I ran through the same zypper dup steps on my test system w/o issue, only my production server is having this problem so I would really appreciate any help you can offer.
