Likely, something is broken with your fallback initramfs.  

Booting from the fallback should be no different than booting from the
normal initramfs.  The fallback simply doesn't apply the autodetect
hook, so it does not try to exclude unnecessary modules.

The fallback is typically useful if you have a disk that you might want
to move to another machine with different hardware.  It is just not
machine specific like th normal one.
