The reboot give me a panic, but without enough information as to why.

Unable to mount root device?

I do have concerns that /dev/root is /dev/sda2 but I'm not sure if the
boot process should redefine that.

Any thoughts from people who know more about boot and what initrd is
about and what the mkinitrd does?

The initrd contains an initramfs which essentially contains the bits you
need to get the root filesystem mounted. mkinitrd creates the initrd.
The initrd itself is just a cpio archive.
