You can also check this; when the fedora balloon starts filling up, press esc button and check the modules that are being loaded. Look for any "failed" ones!

Boot into a console by following these steps: press "e" at the boot menu (the one where you can select different kernel versions), arrow down to the line that starts with "linux", put a 3 at the end of the line, then press F10.

Once you log into the console, check the logs.

Change to the log folder:

cd /var/log

Display the logs in date order:

ls -ltr

Now check any recently-modified log, such as messages:
