Encounter "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS" when boot ArchLinux installation files

RE: Encounter "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS" when boot ArchLinux installation files
undionly.kpxe is for legacy bios boot, (I'm assuming undionly.ipxe was a spello)

for EFI boot you would like snponly.efi or ipxe.efi instead....

However you have clearly been able to boot the kernel so not sure how you got to that point...

any way in efi mode you will have to add initrd= option to the kernel command line for it to know whch file it should use from efifs as ram image data.

Code:
kernel http://192.168.0.5/arch/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz archisobasedir=arch archiso_http_srv=http://192.168.0.5/ ip=:::::eth0:dhcp initrd=archiso.img
initrd http://192.168.05/arch/boot/x86_64/archiso.img
boot

Forum FAQ covers this as well:

"Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS" when booting Linux in EFI mode

For the kernel to know which initrd it should load, it needs to be specified on the cmdline mentioned in efi stub documentation

Example:
Code:
kernel vmlinuz initrd=initram.igz
initrd initram.igz
boot
