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

I'm wondering if it's necessary to reboot between after adding the
blacklist line and before doing dracut. If you reboot and nouveau is
not showing up with the 'lsmod|grep nouveau' above, then it may be
worth trying the dracut line again. Also the new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
would be good to see.

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)

(For the record: I meant to suggest dracut -f which would force
overwrite of the existing initramfs file, however it's probably safer
to move it to a backup as in the two lines above.)

Sorry this is taking so much back-and-forth, I've been on your end of
this kind of thing and I know it's frustrating.

Sorry, I forgot to give you this log.
