Default after install of new Linux ISO with new kernel&initrd, could not boot

I believe that RedHat kernel rpms have a built-in

post install tool that calls /sbin/new-kernel-pkg

which┬*in turn calls /sbin/grubby to update the

grub configuration file.┬*

So examinie the built-in scripts┬*in a vendor kernel

rpm to see how they do this.

Subject: after install of new Linux ISO with new kernel&initrd, could not boot

hi, dear experts
When I made my own centOS Linux ISO with new compiled┬*kernel and initrd.img by myself. I met one problem.
there is some relation with anaconda, so i turn to ask for help here.
Here┬*are steps:
1´╝ëbuild one kernel RPM with compiled kernel and initrd.img in the ISO.
2) when install the new centOS Linux┬*ISO, the installation is fine.
3)┬*after installation, it is not able to reboot, because grub "menu.lst" is broken. There is no "initrd initrd.img" line
┬*┬* in menu.lst file. The OS could not boot normally.
My questions:
Q)┬*since the menu.lst/grub.conf is generated by anaconda, I am wondering that there is something wrong when the
anaconda generating the grub menu.lst? Is that something wrong with my kernel name induced this ?

Many thanks for your help.
