i'm sorry but your initramfs-tools is not from debian,
we _never_ shipped with an modprobe -Q argument in those boot scripts.
check the following on any debian initramfs-tools release:
egrep -r modprobe /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-premount/

also to diagnose your error i would need the actual error output
and btw yaird is not supported, for initramfs debugging see

i see that is the explanation, so you'd need to reinstall a bunch
of stuff in that case.
apt-get --reinstall install initramfs-tools.

but i'm sorry cross distro changing is not supported,
you are pretty much on your own in that case.
i'd recommed using debian-installer to get a clean root on your
swap or such for a start, see daily build images
