 You should be able to use the PageUp key (sorry, I don't know how
it is labelled if you are using a Czech keyboard) to scroll back
once the kernel has panic'd.  Doesn't always work after a panic, but
it might let you see earlier messages.

 In general, I suspect there is a difference between the hardware of
the 2 computers, and one or more of your configure choices is wrong
for the other machine.

 And please don't top post (in other words, reply _below_ what you
are replying to, and trim what you reply to.  Thanks.

 Good luck!
