CentOS 7 on HP Compaq 6710b and 16GB micro sd card

Yesterday i have installed CentOS 7 on my old HP Compaq 6710b laptop. I don’t wanted to remove my current OS (ubuntu) because I did’nt know if I find all software which i am using, so i decided to install it on 16GB micro sd card (!).

After install i have done this:

  1. add EPEL repo
  2. add RPMForge repo
  3. add NUX-Dextop repo (for remmina)
  4. add Google repo (for Google Chrome)
  5. add Adobe repo (for flashplayer)

After two days of working on it (Geany, GIMP, OpenVPN, Remmina) I must say that everything is working fine.

    I need to do the same, but when I did the successful installation and reboot the machine, I get the following error. What can I do?:

    dracut-initqueue[109]: Warning: Could not boot.
    dracut-initqueue[109]: Warning /dev/mmdc0 does not exist
    Starting Dracut Emergency Shell
    Warning: /dev/mmdc0 does not exist

    Generating “/run/initramfs/sosreport.txt”

    Entering emergency mode. Exit the shell to continue.
    Type “journalctl” to view system logs.
    You might want to save “/run/initramfs/sosreport.txt” to a USB stick or /boot
    after mounting them and attach it to a bug report.
