Kernal Panic - unable to find suspended data...

Postby Cjam » Thu Aug 11, 2005 8:02 pm

Help please, I had a fully working dual boot machine with Mandrake and XP - all was going swimingly, until some bright spark suggested that XP operates better if individual bits have their own partition (such as virtual memory, my documents etc).

I dutifully split my drive up, sadly while XP now works better than before (hurray), I get the following error when I try to boot into Linux.

Code: Select all
resuming from /dev/hda7
resuming from device hda7

Kernal Panic: Resume machine: Unable to find suspended - data signature ( - misspelled

What I guess has happened is the partitions have moved around a bit, and what was the Linux bit (swap file etc) is now not. The bootloader still operates (LiLo), although I cannot get into any Linux stuff unless I boot from a Live CD.

Any ideas anyone? How can I get back to where I was before?

Help Please

Well resuming tends to suggest it is trying to recover from a hybernate state.
Try the 'noresume' kernel option

Does that mean XP has written something to the bios conserning power management or something. Why would the partitions move around !?

What does the table actually look like [ cfdisk -Pt /dev/hda ]. did you use XPs' fdisk to create the new partitions ?.

Sounds wierd. (Just curious).
