You should not worry about a thing.
You were very careful and checked the actual filenames of initramfs/kernel and fixed the
bootloader config.  That's all that is needed. Your system is fine.
Most people however are not this careful and won't update their bootloader config,
yielding a broken system.  (it shouldn't be needed to be this careful,
the installer should do the right thing, i.e. it was my job to fix this in new images)
