If you do
lsmod |grep nouveau
Do you still see the nouveau module?
lsmod |grep nv
Show the old nv module or nvidia?

It looks like nouveau is still being loaded. If you can post the
/etc/X11/xorg.org file and /var/log/Xorg.0.log that might help pin
down the cause.
However, I think I missed out a necessary option for the dracut
command, try (again don't type the # they just indicate separate lines
run as root):
# mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img.bak
# dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

Sorry, I forgot to give you this log.
/etc/X11/xorg.org is actually a configuration file rather than a log,
this one is attempting to set up nvidia which is correct. If nouveau
is still being loaded then I think it must be coming from the
initramfs, things to try:
1. Run the 'mv' and 'dracut' commands given above (I know you've done
the dracut one already, but it probably refused to overwrite the
existing initramfs file).
2. If after rebooting you're still finding nouveau is being loaded (by
running the lsmod|grep nouveau command) then do:
# cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
and check it has the line 'blacklist nouveau'. If it does then try this:
# dracut -f /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
(again, don't type those '#' signs)
3. If at this point after rebooting nouveau is still starting then I'm
really stumped. The log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log would be useful. You
could also capture the dmesg information (the kernel messages) by
dmesg > dmesg-out.txt
If you do send the dmesg-out.txt file created then it's probably best
to send that direct to my email rather than the users list as it will
be quite big.
