Kernel Panic for Centos (kernel.2.6.32-358.18.1.e16)

Unable to mount the root partition?

If you are using CentOS 6.4 and after doing a yum update get the error as seen below:

kernel panic

and your server (VM) does not come up then you can do as below:

1. Access your server using the console if it's a VM.

2. And then boot into the last working kernel.

3. After you have logged in your system using the old kernel, run the "yum reinstall kernel" command:
e.g. # yum reinstall kernel-2.6.32-358.18.1.e16.x86_64

4. Now reboot.

And voila, your system should now be up and running.
