I don't think you'll be able to get your system to boot at all until everything is up-to-date. 
You'll need to install filesystem before rebooting. Have you managed to move everything 
into /usr yet?

The following directories should now be symlinks:

/bin -> usr/bin
/lib -> usr/lib
/lib64 -> usr/lib
/sbin -> usr/bin

Have you managed to get that far?
