I did update yesterday from F25 to F26 and after system reboot, it freezes after fedora logo with message "A start job is running for hold until boot finishes" or "Started process core Dump (PID 1459/UID 0)"

Please help me out

can you get to a console by using ctrl-alt-f2? if so, paste the output of lspci so I can see your hardware, i bet you have an nvidia card, and will need to manually update the proprietary driver.
