Description

After first installation, the event system-init is fired to execute all initialization tasks, like expanding templates and configuring the network.
Actual implementation locks tty1 terminal until the process is done, but the initialization is not visible inside any other console or even serial console.

Move system-init execution before all tty are started to avoid user login during the initialization process.

The script can't print output to the console, so the system seems blocked.

Actually the output is printed inside the /dev/console device which can be changed by the console option from kernel command line.

Serial console is a limit case, we can leave it without a solution.
Still a new documentation page should be added to the administrator manual.
