I apologize for crossposting from the forum, but I am not getting any replies there so far.
I recently became an owner of a Thinkpad 770, which rather ancient by modern standards and decided to give it a spark of fresh life by installing Arch on it.
The CD boots okay, but when I try to actually boot x86 Arch, it Kernel Panics with the subject title. It tries /bin/init, /sbin/init and /bin/sh, failing with the same message for all of them. Some searching shows that ERRNO 26 is for a busy file, but I've no clue what may be accessing all the init files at the time of the boot.
I tried passing init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd, but it fails with error -2. Is systemd not on the CD?
I have read about successful installations of Arch on this machine previously, but they mentioned no problems of the sort, presumably that was pre-systemd Arch.
Is there anything else I could try to get it working?
I am using a late 2015 ISO for the CD.
