I have seen scattered reports of this all over. I was running Fedora 22 and used dnf to upgrade to Fedora 23. Upon reboot, it loads until "Starting to Switch Root", at which point it flickers for a solid 10 seconds, then is static and freezes. If I restart and select Fedora 22 (same kernel version as Fedora 23 though), I can boot just fine. However, my system seems to be in a sort of half-upgraded state -- some things list Fedora 23 version, others Fedora 22 version. I am using akmod-nvidia.x86_64 driver (version 358.16) for my Geforce GTX 970 GPU. I am hesitant to manually install the new version of the driver (352.79 stable, or 361 Beta), as I fear it will conflict with the akmods system. What is the best course -- should I wait for the repo to update the kmod version and hope it solves the issue? Should I uninstall Fedora 23? Should I downgrade xorg 1.18 to 1.17 (the potential issue). Thanks!

Remove Nvidida module and drivers then do the upgrade or wait until akmod drivers are proper ones
