    If I boot on a working system it is 8,5

    mkrootdev is a nash command

    mkrootdev path
    Makes path a block inode for the device which should be mounted
    as root. To determine this device nash uses the device sug-
    gested by the root= kernel command line argument (if root=LABEL
    is used devices are probed to find one with that label). If no
    root= argument is available, /proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
    provides the device number.

    I already tried switching from the label syntax to /dev/sda5 without effect.
