I fully agree with you. That is what I would do with such a system.
Or try to give the Kernel the right root-parameter to get this stuff to
boot with the original kernel.

But I thought it would be easier and safer to let Ron install from
scratch with the system set up as it will be when it runs.

But I know from my own experience that it took me several tries to get
such a system running. I don't want to push someone else through this
