Kernel panic at boot

I just got a clean install of Arch with only the base packages and automaticly partition setup.  But when I try to boot up, I get this error:

:: Loading root filesystem module...ext3
Waiting for devices to settle...done
:: Initframfs Completed - control passing to kinit
IP-Config: no devices to configure
Waiting 0 s before mounting root device...
kinit: Cannot open root device sda3(8.3)
kinit: init not found!
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempte to kill init!

it appears we both had the same issue - you need to regenerate your kernel. i think in the meantime you'll find that you can use kernel-fallback just fine.

Re: Kernel panic at boot

This ISOs include a small, but nasty bug,
which may lead to a non functional initramdisk,
if you use all defaults suggested by setup.

2 workarounds before installing:
First workaround before entering setup:
mount -t ramfs none /dev
/etc/start_udev
now setup works as it should!
Second workaround:
while using setup:
edit /etc/mkinitcpio to not include autodetect in HOOKS= array

1 workaround if you already installed and system doesn't boot:
use the kernel26-fallback.img as initrd in your bootloader
after successfull boot just fix the ramdisk:
mkinitcpio -p kernel26

I apologize for any non functional default initramdisk by using this ISO.
