You must use the root= kernel parameter in order to boot using this method

The sentence "You must use the root= kernel parameter in order to boot using this method" from EFI system partition#Using bind mount has been bugging me for while now. I traced its origins to Special:Diff/277007.

Are there situations where it's possible to omit the root= parameter (not counting boot loader magic since it also passes the parameter to the kernel)?

Technically its possible if you get systemd-auto-gpt-generator run in initramfs or you hard coded it in a custom kernel or initramfs. Of course this is unsupported.

Although the wiki was updated after systemd-auto-gpt-generator came into existence, I don't think it's referencing that. I have a slight suspicion that it could be about grub-mkconfig not liking a bind mounted /boot. I'll test it when I get the time. -- nl6720 (talk) 15:41, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
