    Default Unable to initial console

    Hi

    I have installed BT3 final (via USB, dual boot XP) but when i choose backtrack in lilo
    it runs through alot of "commands" and then stops at -

    "warning: unable to open an initial console."
    "Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. try passing init= option to kernel"

    How do I do that? or even better how do i solve that?????!!!!

    REALLY NEED HELP!!!! thanks

    P.S. should i be worried about "kernel Panic"???

    Default Adding vista to lilo

    I have used this awesome tutorial kudos and thanks. I however, due to circumstances, need (unfortunately) my vista. It took me a long time to figure out that i needed to put other instead of image e.g.:

    #Vista

    other = /dev/sda2
    table = /dev/sda
    label = vista

    #end Vista
    I hope this helps someone and saves time for others.

    i have an other Probelm

    Default BT3-USB on HDD (as live-System)
    Hello,

    i want install the BT3-USB Version on an HDD with Windows by using the NT-Bootloader of Windows XP. (but no real-BT3 installation, only the small live-install)

    BT3 is running fine on an SD or USB-Stick installation with "changes"

    But I don´t want everytime use the Stick or SD-Card(plug in plug out ). I want integratet the System in the HDD.

    now:
    c: win 98 (FAT32)
    d: win XP (FAT32)
    e: BT3-usb folders (FAT32)
    f: data-Files(share-folder for all Systems)
    g: ext2 (for changes Folder, then BT3 ist running on HDD

    I want the live install on HDD, not the real install with 4,2GB!!!

    I have copied the Folder´s from the USB Stick on e: (BT3 an boot)

    And now i want configure the NT-Bootloader from Win XP, so that i can boot the BT3.

    dd if=/dev/hda6 of=/tmp/bootsek.lin bs=512 count=1 and integration in the boot.ini doesn´t run. (i think this is only usefull for an real install)

    Have anybody an Idea?

    this is my lilo dual boot with XP.

    for Windows
    bt~#liloconfig << by doing this, if you have a windows installation it will be added to the lilo.conf and the boot and vga will be set correctly.

    select simple -> select framebuffer (I used the one that is automatically selected) -> then it's asking for kernel parameters just leave it empty and press ok -> Then slect the option install to MBR.

    It will give an error, Lilo Install error #1, just ignore it and press ok.
    Quote from alexios, post #24

    bt~# nano /etc/lilo.conf
    Code:
    # Start LILO global section
    lba32
    boot = /dev/sda
    prompt
    timeout = 1200
    change-rules
    reset
    vga = 791
    # End LILO global section
    
    # Windows bootable partition config begins
    other = /dev/sda1
    label = XP
    table = /dev/sda
    # Windows bootable partition config ends
    
    # Linux bootable partition config begins
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/sda3
    label = BT
    # Linux bootable partition config ends
    change the root according to your Windows installation & BT3 mounted.
