What I have done in the past is to boot off the install media,
select the rescue mode, and then chroot to where the root file
system is mounted. I thin build the new initrd, making sure it
matches the kernel I plan to boot from. In the future, installing a
new kernel will build the initrd, using the information from the
running kernel. At least it has worked correctly for the last 5
updates on this machine sense I moved the drive here, and rebuilt
the initrd for this motherboard.
