Additional info:
"<pwhalen> satellit, seeing the same issue. it looks like the initramfs is host-only for some reason. Looking at the kickstart I think I see why. <pwhalen> we remove dracut-config-generic in post, but it looks like we also rebuild the initramfs for sugar as well..seems like the rebuild happens after we remove dracut-config-generic.. so host only :(

<pwhalen> satellit, broken in rawhide as well - 15M May 14 15:59 initramfs-5.1.0-1.fc31.armv7hl.img <pwhalen> should be around 40-50M" "<pwhalen> satellit, if you replace the initramfs with this one - https://fedorapeople.org/~pwhalen/soas/initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img <pwhalen> it will boot. Thanks for bringing this to our attention."

    may 15:

<pwhalen> satellit, mount the sd, the look for the partition labelled boot

<pwhalen> might be easiest to then right click and open in terminal, then 'su -c "wget https://fedorapeople.org/~pwhalen/soas/initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img"' <pwhalen> then 'sudo mv initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img.1 initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img' <pwhalen> should od it <pwhalen> or do it even <pwhalen> and we'll get it fixed for f31. As it is it will only work in qemu.
