What happens afterwards? Are you dropped into the rescue shell?
If not, try to enable the debug shell by adding "systemd.debug-shell" to
the kernel command line. This will give you a root shell on tty9.

There you should be able to inspect the system. The output of
systemctl status
systemd-analyze dump
journalctl -alb
would be helpful

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
