May I ask what does "because of the kernel" mean? I had been recently migrating from Citrix XenServer to Proxmox VE, and had encountered problems that the migrated VMs could not boot. The cause was that SCSI driver was not included in the initramfs. If you have the same problem, try generating a "generic" initramfs that boots on any host, instead of an "optimized" one that boots only specific hardware.

For Arch Linux, you need to modify mkinitcpio.conf and remove "autodetect" option, before regenerating the initramfs.

For CentOS, you could install "dracut-config-generic", before regenerating initramfs.

For other distros, similar modifications applies.
