Sorry for the late response. Had to catch the train.
So, to understand your setup: your live image "lives" in an nfs-mounted
or thereabouts, right?
I am not at my devel machine at the moment, but there is a script
somewhere within this init thing which tries to find this boot image
(trolling through accessible block devices and so on). Perhaps it's not
finding the live image?
