shutdown fail screenshot

While doing 17 Beta RC3 validation, I've noticed that occasionally, a VM fails to shutdown, with a screen full of dracut garbage. Screenshot attached. Lots of stuff 'not found'. I'd guess some kind of race condition. I haven't found a reliable reproducer, it just...happens sometimes. Always in VMs, so far.

So, this works for the same VM and sometimes it does not?
