It may be worth following up with your AWS TAM to get clarification on
when billing actually starts. Most of the time spent initializing the
system is outside of the customer's control; You can see from dmesg
output that the kernel doesn't take particularly long to start. If the
resources you've provisioned aren't yet available to you, I don't think
you're being billed for them.
(Although I work for AWS, I don't have a deep understanding of how
billing and metering work.)
