If sda1 is mounted on /boot and it is empty, then yes, that's bad.  If I
understand correctly, --init-partition formats the partition, and as a
result, clears any files that were it previously held...

If that's right, it's better to pass --init-partition to palo, than it
is to add --init-partition in palo.conf, since you won't have to worry
about changing it back afterwards.

You'll have to copy the files from /boot again (using /mnt for sda1,
making sure you've unmounted /boot first).
