Do you see the "disabling NMI on error" message?

Can you boot with "pci=earlydump vga=0xf07" and capture the output?
Drop the "vga=0xf07" if it doesn't work or makes the screen
unreadable.

It seems like the hang happens long before we would do anything with
an initramfs, but maybe there's a timing or memory map issue.  It
seems like a hassle to pursue this angle, but if we can't figure it
out otherwise, maybe we'll have to.
