Re: Kernel Panic during Install

which server and which architecture you are installing?

sometimes it seen that, if your architecture is 32-bit and u install the 64-bit, it'll gave error.

Check your hardware architecture and your installation CD's

Re: Kernel Panic during Install

Shalom,

Kernel panic on install comes from a number of sources.

1) Hardware not supported by the OS in the system.
2) Installation of the OS to an unspported platform, eg 64 bit install on 32 bit only hardware as an example. IA64 OS on a non-Itanium system is another common cause.

You should check these things.
