Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)
Trying to restore on HP D530 std. IDE WD800 hdd. Downloaded the latest version as at 22-11-09 of True Image Home 2009. Tried the F11, no acpi tna. latest BIOS from HP all okay, tried additional hdds, same fault. Tried old version of enterprise, just bombs out and restarts PC. TI2009 creates the image without error, but when you need it.........
We will do our best to resolve the issue you experience.
Please download ISO image based on ISOLinux from your account under Registered Products and create Acronis bootable disc using third-party software. ISOLINUX Bootable Media is usually more up to date than the Acronis Loader one. This is due to the fact a new version of Acronis Bootable Media is uploaded to the website more frequently than regular product updates are released.
ISOLINUX Bootable Media has several boot parameters that may help overcome possible issues with booting and restoring the image. You can also set a specific VGA resolution in the ISOLINUX media if there an issue with the Graphical User Interface (GUI). Check the following article for more details.
If the ISOLINUX CD works flawless for you, you can update Acronis Startup Recovery Manager in the following way:
Exclude kernel.dat and ramdisk.dat and replace the old ones. The files are located at:
* \Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome\kernel.dat
* \Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome\ramdisk.dat
After that reactivate Acronis Startup Recovery Manager and see if the issue remains.
Let us know if you need further assistance.

While i have a registered copy of true image 10, I am trying a trial version of True Image Home 2010 for a friend.
Unfortunately, I am getting the following error message:
"Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)"
While I would like to reccommend the purchase of True Image 2010 Home to my friend,
i will have to look at other products if i cant get help from you in a timely manner.
I just encountered the same problem with a Lenovo T60 Thinkpad laptop when trying to back it up using True Image Home 2010. This happened with both a bootable CD and a USB thumb drive, and with or without "acpi=off noacpi" added to the startup parameters.
What finally fixed the problem for me was to disable USB CD and floppy boot support in the Thinkpad BIOS (hold down F1 when turning the computer on). Once that was done, the default True Image configuration without additional startup parameters worked without a hitch.
