Anyone have any idea why it freezes at this point:

[ 0.093420] x86 : Booting SHP configuration: [ 0.093540].... node #0, CPUs: #1

Do you have any F24 kernels that boot on this system? Maybe boot an older one that does work and run dnf -y update and see if you get a newer one that might work.

My system (upgraded from 23 to 24 & updated today) is running 4.6.3-300.fc24.

@blorg, Thanks, I do have older Kernels that work fine. I've just updated to the latest as per your version 4.6.3-300.fc24. Unfortunately, still, stops at the same point.

But I've noticed it now occasionally gets past this point, although not very often, so i still need to revert to older kernel f23 to successfully boot everytime.

I thought I'd give an update to this updated to 4.6.4-301-fc24, still have the same issue. Reverted back to 4.5.5-201.fc23 and everything is fine. I still haven't found anything on this, I will update once I do.

So, another update. If I force the kernel to use a single core using maxcpus=1 parameter then it boots. Seems like 4.6.* has some issue detecting the other core/s.
