    Exclamation Regenerate initramfs through chroot - Help


    I am using Arch.

    I had to recreate my partitions, so I rsynced them to my external, and then after recreating the partitions, copied the content back. However, this all changed my UUIDs and system does not boot even though I updated those in fstab and grub.

    As I understand, I should regenerate initramfs which is easy if you can boot into the system, but I cannot. How can I do this from Arch or ubuntu livecd?

    This is my work computer and if I don't get this to work before Monday, I am screwed.

    You can chroot into the install see here

    You should be able to chroot from either live CD ... Ubuntu live CD will be better for you to post info and search the net for assistance.

    If you want more help tracking down the issue then the contents of fstab and grub.cfg would be useful, together with the output of sudo blkid
