i install bt2.iso via Vmware 6 .
i have a external sata usb hdd, so i attached it into Vmware(using whole disk), and followed livedcd install instructions.
after installation complete.i remove the iso img,restart the vm, and it works well. but while i reboot my pc,(already have selected using usb hdd to bootup [HTS541612J9SA00, it's a sata 120gb external hd]), it works well at the beginning, after a while i get a kernal panic like this:
/dev/sda1 * linux 83
/dev/sda2 swap 82
/dev/sda3 linux 83
bt ~ # cd /mnt
bt mnt # mkdir boot
bt mnt # mkdir bt2f
bt mnt # mount /dev/sda1 boot
bt mnt # mount /dev/sda3 bt2f
Source (BackTrack CD): <leave this blank>
Install BackTrack to: /mnt/bt2f
Write MBR to: /dev/sda
and system hangs up.interupt receiving any input.

i reboot to windows and boot it via vmware, it working normally.
i also tried change lilo.conf root=/dev/sd* or root=/dev/hd*
(* means [ax,bx,etc])
i'm a newbie in linux,i think this would be a sata driver problem.my pc chipest model is ICH7
this question make me house arrest,could any one help me here.thx very much.
