Hello,

I just installed ProxmoxVE 6. I am booting from ZFS RAID 10.

After the kernel loads, it just sits there. When i hit enter I get an (initramfs) prompt.

I don't see any errors in dmesg.

This a the bootloader screen, this is my cmdline:

initrd=\EFI\proxmox\5.0.15-1-pve\initrd.img-5.0.15-1-pve root=ZFS=rpool/ROOT/pve-1 boot=zfs​

Thanks for any help!

Can you try to do a "zpool import -R / rpool" from the initrd disk prompt. If any errors, post them, if no errors you should be able to use "CTRL + D" or "exit" to exit the prompt and continue with booting.

Yes i can! Thanks!

I also added rootdelay=15 to my command line and that worked.

Any idea how to make this fix permenant?

I believe i am using systemd-boot.

I'm guessing i have to mount the ESP and edit loader/loader.conf on both drives? or is there a PVE tool i should be using?
