After some reading across the forum, I see I am not the only one with 
this issue. my /usr and /boot are both on a separate partition from /. 
It seems this cause the issue.
As far as I can understand, the solution seems to add the Hook back and 
rebuilt the image.

Is this correct??

How can I do that? Form a live cd? Or can I do anything from Ubuntu?
