I do not want to flame, but let me give you an advise too : BOTTOM POST
in the ML, it is much more easy to follow :-)
Yes, I have a solution, follwoing Corentin Delcourt and Kacper Zuk answer :
If that's the issue, you can mount your root partition in Ubuntu, chroot
to it (read Change Root article on archwiki), edit /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
and run mkinitcpio -p linux.
Never did it before, but will manage to achieve to solve this issue.
Learning, again and again.
