Hi.

I've just installed Fedora 20 onto my HP Pavilion G6 laptop, and everything was working well, for a little while.

Since I use the machine essentially as a second desktop, It's got a full compliment of accessories to go with it - a mouse, a keyboard, a hard drive, all of which are USB devices.

Upon initial install, all of the devices were working as expected.

When I restarted the computer, it hung on the final line of output "Rebooting.", which looks something like this:

[ OK ] Failed unmounting /home
[ OK ] Failed unmounting /boot
[ OK ] Failed unmounting temporary directory
[ OK ] Reached target Unmount All Filesystems
[ OK ] Stopped target Local File Systems (Pre).
       Stopping Remount Root and Kernel File Systems...

[ OK ] Stopped Collect Read-Ahead Data.
[ OK ] Started Show Plymouth Reboot Screen.
[ OK ] Started Restore /run/initramfs.
[ OK ] Reached Target Shutdown.
Cannot finalize remaining file systems and devices, giving up. # Hah, right!

Rebooting.

This is transcribed as accurately as possible - I took (blurry) pictures.

Similarly, powering off the computer, with both GUI and CLI, provided extremely similar errors. When I am forced to kill power to turn off my computer, I boot without issue (or so I believe) and none of the USB devices work. If I have booted with a device plugged in, powering off gives me error output to reflect this - similar to what is posted above.

This happens every time the computer is booted/rebooted/powered-down with a USB peripheral - there is nothing in dmesg to indicate a USB is detected, yet the dracut warnings signal the device IDs that are assigned to the ports when everything is working correctly (Before ... (more)
