No such edit is necessary!!!!

You don't pass any "bootargs" here? Where is your root filesystem?

This looks fishy. Is there a PCI card installed? Remove it!!

Did you modify the kernel configuration? Did you try  passing  useful
kernel boot arguments?

cards, and retry using useful boot arguments.
