“cat /proc/partitions” shows that only the ram* devices are listed.
None of the hard disk partitions are listed.  Also, in the rescue REPL I
don’t see any disk under /dev/.

So (gnu build file-systems) works as it should.  Curious.

When I boot with the USB stick, however, /dev/sda (the USB disk) and
/dev/sdb (the hard disk) both exist.

I’m guessing that it’s a problem with the initrd; some missing kernel
module maybe.  Is there a way to regenerate the initrd without having to
reinstall the whole system?  I’m willing to fall back to my old ways of
manipulating things in the store just to get this thing booted soon.
(I’ll ask for forgiveness later.)
