Hi, Thomas.

It works.
With "rootwait", it can boot with no initrd.
Thank you very much. :)

Please pass "rootwait" in your kernel parameters. It tells the kernel
to wait until the root device appears: USB devices are detected
asynchronously, and sometimes the kernel may try to mount the root
filesystem before the USB devices have been detected.

If that still doesn't work, it means that your kernel configuration is
wrong and lacks some device drivers.
