Also please post the actual label of the init executable:

ls -lZ /sbin/init

or wherever that is.

It should be init_exec_t.

Init is the father of all processes, if it hasn't transitioned properly
to init_t soon after booting up, then it all goes tits up...

- check the label above;
- try relabeling the whole filesystem;
- try the init_systemd boolean if you are using systemd as init.

Please keep up informed on the progress.
