8 Moving systemd to /sbin sounds like it's not going to work. Run
9 readelf -d /usr/lib/systemd/systemd; all the NEEDED libraries on
10 /usr/lib should be available to the binary at the time it's being
11 executed.
13 How did you get your initramfs? dracut? genkernel? Roll your own?

27 I use dracut for my initramfs; I would recommend you to try it.
28 However, last time I tried to use it with LVM (a few days ago), the
29 last version (037) failed, but 036-r4 worked perfectly.
