It means that the initramfs files of the new kernels are not loading
dmraid either because the dmraid module is not being loaded, "dmraid
-ay is not being run or both."

Do you have any dracut and/or dmraid errors in
/var/log/messages
or
/var/log/boot.log

Is there a dmraid directory or module in
/usr/share/dracut/modules.d

You probably already know this but change in /etc/yum.conf
installonly_limit=3  to a higher value,
I have mine set to 5. This means the next kernel update you get won't erase your only
working kernel.
