Bug Description

So, installing 14.04.4 works fine, but systems with nvme drives don't boot after installing 14.04.5.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Install Ubuntu 14.04.5 on a system with an nvme drive
2) reboot
3) instead of booting to a graphical environment, there is an initramfs prompt.

Notes: This also prevents reaching any of the recovery mode tools.
