My guess is that the initial ramdisk is not found in *both* */boot
directories. IIRC, (I haven't looked at that part of the book in awhile),
the book doesn't copy initrd images to the new boot directory. I posted
regarding this many moons ago. Just copy the initial ramdisk images from
your original host's /boot to the $LFS/boot and then you should be good to

BTW, a variation on the copy of the images, with some added sort/uniq
processing to eliminate redundancies, can be used to automatically copy
the initrd images as well. This is what my BILLS' scripts do.
