Pick "Rescue an installed system" from the menu. Answer the usual questions about language and stuff. Don't bother to bring up the network. Let it mount your partitions. chroot /mnt/sysimage cd /boot Run ls to get the kernel version. (Use the latest installed.) This will also give you the name of the initrd. mkinitrd -f <initrd name> <kernel version> If you do not get any errors, then type "exit" twice and the system will reboot. Here is an example from a fc9 virtual box. mkinitrd -f initrd-2.6.25-14.fc9.i686.img 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
