comment Why do I need to specify two init images - initrd and boot - inside KVM to boot to bash?
@Gilles It took some time to find back where I read that initramfs might automatically find the root file system. At was in Patrick's answer for question unix.stackexchange.com/questions/92720/… stating: "However it (initramfs) might also do something to automatically figure out where your root device is, and so there's no parameter (root=) at all."

@mikeserv I am starting to get the picture. How does init start? In other words which script gets executed first? Or where does the output Running /scripts/init-premount come from? Grepping the output from cat /scripts/* /conf/* doesn't match with cat ... | grep -i /init-premount or cat ... | grep "Mounting root file system.

@mikeserv /root is the output from /root && echo $(pwd) || mkdir /root on the (initramfs) prompt inside KVM.

comment How to fix boot into initramfs prompt and “mount: can't read '/etc/fstab': No such file or directory” and “No init found”?
I have made a new SE question for the why: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/120999/… Note: I do think that this KVM (Parallels Desktop v8) only has a BIOS (not UEFI) due to the BIOS boot message.
