I apologize for crossposting from the forum, but I am not getting any replies there so far.
I recently became an owner of a Thinkpad 770, which rather ancient by modern standards and decided to give it a spark of fresh life by installing Arch on it.
The CD boots okay, but when I try to actually boot x86 Arch, it Kernel Panics with the subject title. It tries /bin/init, /sbin/init and /bin/sh, failing with the same message for all of them.
Probably a stupid question, but have you checked the integrity of the disc? If you still have it (or can find it), try the md5sum/sha-1sum of the iso, or, failing that, try mounting the cd and then copying files off it. If there are errors and/or unreadable files, any OS will complain loudly (though Windows will mostly complain in it's journal^weventlog).
Just a thought.
