[solved] rEFInd UEFI Boot failure

Hi,

I just installed arch with the new installer 2012.10.06 and following the Beginners Guide step by step.
For the bootloader I took EFISTUB and rEFInd.

My partitions:
/dev/sda1 -> /
/dev/sda2 -> /home
/dev/sda3 -> /boot/efi
/dev/sdc1 -> /var

But trying to boot my new Arch didn't work.
The rEFInd seems to autodetect
\EFI\arch\vmlinuz-arch.efi
Running it, gives me:

Starting vmlinuz-arch.efi
using load options 'vmlinuz-arch.efi root=/dev/sda1 ro rootfstype=ext4 systemd.unit=graphical.target initrd=EFI\arch\initramfs-arch.img '

the root option seems to be read from \EFI\arch\refind_linux.conf

"Boot to X"          "root=/dev/sda1 ro rootfstype=ext4 systemd.unit=graphical.target"
"Boot to console"    "root=/dev/sda1 ro rootfstype=ext4 systemd.unit=multi-user.target"

But than, I only get the error:

ERROR: Root device mounted successfully, but /sbin/init does not exist.

I ran the efibootmgr using my EFI partition (sda3) first, but than I read in a thread here, it should be the root partition (sda1) so I rerun efibootmgr. But nothing changed. Does this mean, you can run it only once?

Hopefully anyone has an idea?

Greetings
DerBaer

Re: [solved] rEFInd UEFI Boot failure

If you are going pure systemd route, and have removed initscripts and sysvinit packages, did you install systemd-sysvcompat ? That package provides systemd symlinks for /sbin/init etc.

Re: [solved] rEFInd UEFI Boot failure

Perfect.

I didn't install systemd-sysvcompat because there were some conflicts, and forgot it than...

Installing it now just works fine.

Thanks for the very fast and helpful reply wink
