I booted my system using in grub :
linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.5.0 root=/dev
I set root to dev to specifically not get it to boot correctly. Of course it falls back to the busybox stuffs; I've seen around the net that you can use mount and somehow start init. I searched around and found switch_root under /sbin and tried to use it, but to no success. How does one change the root and start init with a PID of 1? Also, my init is System V and everything is on the same partition.
