When I try to install Debian Linux (newest stable as of 6.2.2013, x64) on a Dell OptiPlex 740 I keep getting this error message right after I choose "Install" from the main menu (the hdd is empty):
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(254,32)
I have tried using a liveCD and that won't boot up either, screen just goes almost white with a white cursor blinking in the top left corner.
Windows 7 Ult x64 installs fine on the same computer. I have installed Debian on several computers (servers) before this and never had any problems. What's wrong?
