still no luck, after chrooting and pacman -Suy same error. I also have a bios from 2015, but this shouldn’t be bad? I think the problem is with Linux 2.4.20 – however, this time the kernel panic message was different. After trying init= it was the same as before. Trying to downgrade linux and nvidia no luck.
I found the culprit. Seems I am running out of space. However, I do not know where the problem is. I have only 51% used on root.
==> Building image from preset: /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux.preset: ‘default’
-> -k /boot/vmlinuz-linux -c /etc/mkinitcpio.conf -g /boot/initramfs-linux.img
/usr/lib/initcpio/functions: Row 692: printf: Write error: no space left on this device”
I have mounted boot and it says only 10% used. It also does not seem to be a inode problem. However, I am not sure if df works as intendet on a encrypted disk.
after downgrading nvidia, upgrading to linux 2.4.20 again and doing a “mkinitcpio -p linux” it boots again, yay. Thanks for your help!
