I tried to upgrade from Fedora 24 to 27, using dnf system-upgrade. The upgrade process seems to go without a hitch. But on reboot it hangs: sometime after starting wifi, but before giving a login screen or enabling virtual consoles. Is there anything I can do at this point?

Well, I gave up and started over doing it the slow way: 24 to 25 to 26 to 27. That worked.

Thanks for sharing how you solved the problem. Sorry for being too late. Fedora upgrade doesn't support upgrading directly to more than 2 future versions. Therefore, upgrading from 24 to 27 is unsupported. You should be able to go from 24 to 26 and then 26->27. But jumping one by one is OK, although more slow. :P
