That's a big "if". Systemd is usually interwoven with the initramfs and

init=/bin/bash is an old time diagnostic to debug early boot and init.
It's not a substitute for any init system.


One more thing: This is a diagnostic, not a solution for "systemd

representation would be "lovers of simplicity, modularity, and
functionality."
