Thanks a lot!!!

Your two points were right (root= and rd.net.timeout.***).
This is how my pxeconfig now works:

# generated by fai-chboot for host 90:1B:0E:2B:CC:87 with IP no IP
default fai-generated

label fai-generated
kernel vmlinuz-4.19.0-6-amd64
append initrd=initrd.img-4.19.0-6-amd64 ip=dhcp  root= rootovl  FAI_FLAGS=verbose,sshd,createvt FAI_CONFIG_SRC=nfs:// FAI_ACTION=install rd.net.timeout.carrier=15
