Recently I started getting the dreaded "VFS: Kernel panic errors" on my VIA CX 700 board which has a SATA and a PATA controller. I found that I was able to get rid off those by giving the following kernel parameters:
Can anybody explain what does those mean? I read the Kernel-parameters.txt file in the Linux Kernel source Documentation but that was not much helpful.
Suppose if I want to explain somebody why I have to give those parameters for booting properly, how can I explain them?
Also what are the consequences of using these options? Am I giving up something by using them?
This happened once I performed a BIOS update
