System won't boot after install unless partition seperation is done.

I'm trying to do my favourite partition scheme of 'root partition only'.

I've followed this guide.

I've followed all of it except for the partitioning scheme it showed me and the formatting and the mounting.
Here is what I did instead (after cfdisk for 1 bootable root partition):

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1 && mount /dev/sda1 /mnt && mkdir /mnt/home

... and so on ...

The installation worked fine, but, when I rebooted. GRUB shows up, I chose the first option, something similar to "No kernel found." appeared.

Weird...

Currently, I am forced to stick with the root and /home/ partition split.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

Re: System won't boot after install unless partition seperation is done.

Yes.  Properly configure your boot loader.  If you have a single partition the settings need to be adjusted so that the bootloader can find the kernel and initrd which are no longer in the base directory of the boot partition - they are in /boot/
