Booting after updating from RHEL 5.8 to 5.9 on Hyper V guest fails with a kernel panic.

CentOS 5.9 upgrade leaves systems unbootable.

Boot with a older kernel i.e. 2.6.18.308 and make a new initrd with the following command:

mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-348.el5.img 2.6.18-348.el5 –preload hv_storvsc –p
reload hv_vmbus –preload hv_utils -f
