Last Fedora-30-20190312.n.0 server dvd iso is not able to boot.
It is stuck on dracut emergency shell.
in the error log we can see:
localhost dracut-initqueue: Warning: dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts
It seems to me that the size of initrd.img (superior than 64MB) could be the problem but I am not able to confirm.

It seems that last rawhide ppc64le Server dvd iso have the same problem
How was this image created? The cmdline says inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Fedora_S_dvd_ppc64le_30 but the label on sr0 is LABEL="Fedora-S-dvd-ppc64le-30"
I don't think it will map _ to -
Brian, You are right, I changed inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Fedora_S_dvd_ppc64le_30 by inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Fedora-S-dvd-ppc64le-30 in the grub command line and it is a lot better !!! so nothing to do with the initrd size...
The iso is comming from the dayly compose: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/branched/Fedora-30-20190312.n.0/compose/Server/ppc64le/iso/Fedora-Server-dvd-ppc64le-30-20190312.n.0.iso
Ah! DVD. I'm going to bet that pungi is creating that label with the - in it. The boot.iso looks fine:
$ isoinfo -d -i Fedora-Everything-netinst-ppc64le-30-20190312.n.0.iso

Looking at the way ppc64le creates the isolabel shows that it is different from x86_64, because of yaboot (which we don't use anymore) and escapes. I think right way to fix this is to just use the same code as x86_64 in the ppc64le template.
referenced pungi PR is not yet merged and install on production.
So last delivered f30/rawhide composes still have same failure.
Beta is in freeze right now, so this needs a freeze exception to go in. I'm gonna just go ahead and call this an automatic freeze exception per "Complete failure of any non-release-blocking TC/RC image to boot at all under any circumstance - "DOA" image (conditional failure is not an automatic freeze exception)" - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process#Automatic_freeze_exceptions . OK, technically it does boot if you change the args, but come on. :P
Brian, I see you merged the fix, can we assume an update is on the way? Thanks!
