Hi,
I'm getting a critical error when i boot to make the install, the root is not default so the system falls back on the switch root which does not launch when it tries to launch switch root the whole system fails
Any ideas?

Thanks

Did you setup the /root and /boot separate and make sure you were in the correct directory when installing?

I cant because it happens when it loads the kernel so it fails and freezes on kernel

It fails when you try to boot the installed sytem???

You may have to re-run the kernel make part.
