(In reply to lists dev from comment #37)
Without the ability to boot into the Guest, isn't `mkinitrd` in a chrooted
Guest env generally sufficient?

Before you chrooted into the guest filesystem, did you bind mount the /proc,
/sys, and /dev filesystems to the new chroot environment?

This process is very similar to Rescue Mode, and without having those system
directories available to the chroot environment, mkinitrd is not able to build
a fully functional initrd. (FYI - This TID talks about bind mounting in rescue
