I gave it another spin, this time with rpm -e $SUPPRIMER. Got no error
messages, rpm -e simply wiped all non-essential packages. So I don't
think the problem comes from some removed minimal package.

This time I activated startup messages. Booting gets stuck right after
mounting /boot. I'll try to reproduce it, since I can't copy/paste it.

[  OK  ] Mounted /boot.
[ TIME ] Timed out waiting for device
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for /home.

And then quite a few lines, and booting into emergency mode.

Any suggestions?
