I decided to try rEFInd. It at least gets me someplace a bit
different. As near as I can tell it's bombing out while in the initial
ram disk. After having mounted the correct partition as root for the
ram disk (I can tell by typing 'mount' in the shell it drops me to),
it doesn't know what device it should mount as real root. According to
the error message, the device is set to '' (yes, apparently null). It
drops me to a shell, and if I just exit, that's when it tells me that
it's trying to mount '' as real root.
Which sounds like a similar problem to what I was seeing with
gummiboot, but without the kernel panic.
So what needs to be told what where?
