In my appliance, there is /sys, /etc/fstab (present but empty) and

Next step would be to add some debugging to appliance/init to show
what commands are being executed, and what's in the filesystem.

Also if you do:

  $ ./run rescue/virt-rescue -a /dev/null

then it may manage to get to a shell, in which case you can poke
around in the appliance by hand.
