    Kernel Panic


    I'm am getting a kernel Panic with an error "request module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000"
    It says no init found I'm using systemd so I didn't think init was even being used. Any one have an idea in what direction I should take to fix it.

    The kernel always looks for init unless it's specifically told to look for something else. Arch includes a sysvinit compatibility package that makes /sbin/init a link to /bin/systemd, but you might not have that installed yet. Try adding the words "init=/bin/systemd" to the kernel command line (select it in GRUB, then press "e" to edit it).
