Here is the full error message in both 2004.0 and 2004.1:

Code:

EXT2-fs error (device ram0): ext2_check_page: bad entry in directory #7505: rec_len is smalled than the minimal - offset=0, inode=0, rec-len=0, name_len=0
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.


Any help is appreciated.

I am having the exact same problem. I cannot get this iMac to boot. 2004.0 and 2004.1 fail at loading the ramdisk. It says "ran out of compressed data".

2004.2 doesn't even get that far, as you've noted.

I even tried 1.4, which hangs on "Using /lib/modules/misc/cloop.o". The bug that discusses it is here, but the "resolution" was to use 2004.2.

Do we have a real solution, developers?
