A was a bit quick to send this email. My grub configuration is also broken now it seems. When I try to boot I get "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)"

Are you passing the right params to Linux?  Check
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub.

I did a fresh install today. The grub.cfg the installer generates works fine: the background now fills the whole screen and the system boots. If I then generate it with `grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg' and reboot, the system no longer boots: it stops with the kernel panic I mentioned before. So I compared both grub.cfg files and found a difference in the linux boot parameters:

original:      "linux /boot/... root=/dev/hda3 ro quiet"
grub-mkconfig: "linux /boot/... root=UUID=7f....94 ro quiet"

I checked the uuid with blkid and it matches /dev/hda3. Kernel =
