Default Centos 5.5 - Kernel Panic while booting.

Dear centos community,
I was in the process of loading the latest 5.5 release of centos in a VMWARE ESX 4.1 host as my first virtual machine, suddenly while booting I got a panic error with the following on screen. Can someone point me in the right direction. This machine has 24 cores and I allocated 1 for Centos to use with 1024MB of memory. Any clues or workaround to solve this problem? Thank you in advance.

Have you verified your download? I run RHEL5.5 in ESX 4.1 without issue.

Default Centos 5.5 - Kernel Panic while booting.

Tru, you nailed it right. I will load Ubuntu and Debian and will report back, this may be a bug in the loading process. I did install this system with Centos by itself and it load ok, but the virtual machine its not loading and it just keep crashing with the same error as the bug you provided/posted. Maybe someone can shine some light on this. Thank you.

Default Centos 5.5 - Kernel Panic while booting.

Tru, looks like a bug in centos, I just loaded RHEL 6 without any issues. I dont think it has something to do with the actual image file, but in any case maybe I should re-download the entire DVD again just to make sure. Thank you Tru.

This is not a CentOS bug. As stated in the KB articles quoted in the bug report:

https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-31516
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-38013

the patch is in the kernel-2.6.18-194.3.1 and onward. CentOS/RHEL 5.5
comes with kernel-2.6.18-194 which has the bug. RHEL-6's kernel is
much newer at 2.6.32-71, so it does not have this bug.

Therefore to get around this issue, as suggested in one of the KB
articles, you first install CentOS *5.4* and then update it to the
current kernel thus skipping the problematic kernel.

Default Centos 5.5 - Kernel Panic while booting.

Akemi,
I went through the different* mirrors and was unable to locate the ISO as it is stated as deprecated or unsupported, is there any plans to fix this issue in 5.6 or rather 6.x release. It appears that the latest build from Centos was built back in may, lots of bugs have emerge since them including this one relating to a kernel panic. Please advise in the location of 5.4, i am willing to try it.

Akemi,
Why is the vault download like a snail, I usually download 2-3MB/s from the mirrors, but this one your provide only getting 12-15Kbps. Is there anything faster?
