The only issue I had was doing a hardware upgrade and the initrd from
the old system was not good enough for the new system (nForce to AMD
chipset). I was getting the "Volume Group (/dev/Volgroup00) not
found." error and I had to figure out how to build an initrd from a
chroot environment which was an adventure.
