Boot hangs after Upgrade


Just tried to upgraded a VM (QEMU) to 15.3 from 15.2 and it now hangs during the boot process. Set debug mode in grub and the final lines of the output I get are as follows:

  OK  ] Finished dracut initqueue hook.
  OK  ] Reached target Remote File Systems (Pre).
  OK  ] Reached target Remote File Systems.

then multiple lines of:

  ***  ] A start job is running for /dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:04:00.0-part3 (2mins 2s / no limit)

Any clues where to start looking or should I just go for a fresh install?

I have done a quick sanity check and it looks like all the kernel and modules have been installed correctly by mounting the qcow2 drive on the host system.

OK. think I have solved it. It was trying to resume off the swap partition. Editing the boot command from the grub boot screen and removing the resume parameter seems to have got it working.
