All the amdgpu driver is doing at that point is checking that
/lib/firmware/amdgpu exists - which it certainly does in the main
system.  But perhaps the driver has been included in the initramfs
without the firmware.  (I can check this but it will take a while.)

Does running "update-initramfs -u" fix the problem for you?
