I suggested to try booting without systemd and if it does not work with
init=/bin/sh - then try find out what is missing. I recall problem with
udev not createing devices, but could be anything - the only way to find
out is to get into the boot/initrd shell.
It could be also you are missing drivers in the initrd - but therea re so
many possible reasons for failure, I would not speculate on them - just go
into the shell and try find out what is the issue.
