Seems like this BIOS always disables virtualization so unless your other root doesn't have this message I don't know why it's relevant.

Normal, so why are you including this?

Do you get a prompt? Have you tried issuing systemctl status system-journal.service to find out why it wasn't started?

Something isn't being mounted correctly is what it sounds like to me. Like either fstab is wrong, or cryptab is wrong.

Basically you'll have to look at dracut and systemd troubleshooting, get them into debug mode, and find out where the problem is.
