I am not a systemd expert. The images does not speak to me. You could try as
suggested adding init=/bin/sh and see what is in the initrd and what works
and does not work.

You could extract the initrd to investigate what is in there - or to
remaster and test updated version.


In my case following works (microcode size here is 4712) as I do not have

dd if=/boot/initrd.img-4.19.25eko4 bs=512 skip=4712 | zcat - |cpio -i

Finally you can try installing sysvinit-core & Co and see if it makes a
difference or someone else can help you better
