Hello Kevin,

Yeah,first check your command setting as Jaap-Jan said
and make sure it has the right format and correct
content.If it couldn't work,pls try to rebuilding your
LINUX kernel as Wolfgang suggested and download the
workable ramdisk from ftp.denx.de like Steven told.

The setting of ramargs for your reference:

u-boot>setenv ramargs setenv bootargs root=/dev/ram rw
