Default Kernel Panic - Not Syncing : Attempt to kill init!


I followed the perfect setup for CentOS and upon yum update (right at the beginning after OS installed) and doing a reboot I got this error message.

Unable to find volume group "VolGroup00"
ERROR: /bin/lvm exited abnormally (pid 213)
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount: /initrd/dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

I got a P4 32bit machine running and adaptec 1420 SATA2 raid controller card. Use automatic disk partitioning with LVM and 2000MB of swap space.

This is the third time I got the error after 3 reinstallations. Strange thing is that during one of my earlier installation, it was okie. Not sure if I selected any different options or package or did a step differently.

Anyone can shed a little light to this? Thanks in advance.

linux rocks!
