Centos Update 1950 wont boot 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5

Recently I updated my centos 5.0 server to the latest kernel/patches
5.4, when I restarted the server it seems the raid drivers are broken as
it won't boot.


The server has the PERC 6/i raid controller and it boots just find
running an earlier kernel (2.6.18-53.1.21.el5). I've spent a fair bit of
time searching around to see if there are any bugs reported that fit
this problem and can't find any.


Below is what comes up on the screen when booking off the newer kernel


Red Hat nash version starting

unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01)

mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'

setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory

setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory

setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory

switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!


I'm not sure what exactly is the issue here as the raid controller was
working just fine with the earlier version of the kernel?


Any help working out what are the best next steps would be greatly
