I have rebuilt my CentOS 7 server and on restart, the boot screen locks up, yet I can remote in to the server just fine as through it has fully booted.
Restarting and looking at the boot messages, the last message is:
[ OK ] Stopped dracut pre-pivot and cleanup hook
How can I:
a) fix the boot process?
b) study the boot process to see what is hanging?
One hint is that the BIOS reported it had been reset, however I look at its settings and the date and time are correct, and all other settings look good. I may have touched a reset jumper on the motherboard inadvertently.
While the screen update stalls after the message above, after remoting into the system, the
/var/log/boot.log file contains the remainder of the boot process. This could point to a graphics issue?
