Bug Description

I was successfully running 9.10 with 2.6.31-19-generic (amd64). However, when I upgraded to Lucid Lynx 10.04 alpha 3 (linux-image-2.6.32-15-generic), the system no longer boots with the new kernel. The relevant line seems to be:
[ 1.610000] Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt
See below for a more complete log.

I have attempted to find the problem in the upstream kernel, testing with linux-image-2.6.31-02063112-generic and linux-image-2.6.32-02063209-generic (amd64). Both of these had the same problem.

My grub.cfg looks like this:
menuentry "Ubuntu installed" {
 fakebios
 search --set -f /vmlinuz
 linux /vmlinuz video=efifb vga=normal noefi acpi=force root=/dev/sda3 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8
 initrd /initrd.img
}

I'm running this on an XServe1,1 with an efi grub2.

I obtained the kernel output from the serial console before it hung. Note that this is a slightly newer kernel than the one that was failing before. Let me know you need more information.

Have probably same issue here: it was ok with lucid-alpha1 (xubuntu), however alpha3 and the daily build from sunday 7th of march 2010 fail to boot.

Directly after loading the kernel it oopses and instantly reboots, one can not really see whats printed there (and i have no serial consola available here).

Behavior is same on 2 different PC's:
-Centrino
-Centrino Duo

Behaviour is same when:
acpi=off noapic nolapic nosmp

Same here. Kernel panic when trying to log in Mandriva 2010 and PCLinuxOS 2010.

Can this be (one of) the reason(s)?

A disk is in both GRUB's referred to differently.

--------------------GRUB------------GRUB2
/dev/sda1-------(hd0,0)---------(hd0,1)
/dev/sdb1-------(hd1,0)---------(hd1,1)

So, when GRUB2 passes on (let us say for sda1) (hd0,1), but once the kernel of a distro still using GRUB is loading, it expects (hd0,0)

Does this make sense?

Hi lid,

If you could also please test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
