Possible explanation:
when the system tried to read the hw clock and set the system clock,
it needed info about your timezone (because UTC=no) and tried to
read /etc/localtime, which was a symlink to /usr, which was not
mounted yet.

Do you have a separate /usr partition?

It seems reasonable to me.

Best regards.
