Apologies. Typos.

linux vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2 ---> linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2
initrd initrd                ---> initrd /initrd.img

(Check that (hd0,gpt2) has initrd.img).

You can try with the corrected lines but I do not think the missing
"/" is the problem.

See where this gets you:

Boot the installer from the USB stick. Choose "Advanced options" and
"Rescue mode". Eventually you will be asked for the device to use as
the root file system. On the next page you can choose to reinstall
