Hi all,

My Fedora 23 does sometime not boot.. I can see boot menu but when I choose which kernel I want to use it sometimes boots, sometimes doesn't. I have to switch PC off (hard way) and try again. It doesn't matter if I try to run another kernel, debug mode or rescue - it's always same. It boots randomly :D. Sometimes it boots on first try, sometimes on third....

can anybody help me?

Next time it's stuck, press ESC and see what task failed or during which process it stalled. (Same thing you see there gets written to /var/log/boot.log). Another option is to analyze your system is by booting a working kernel and run journalctl -b-1 to show the previous boot log. (-b-n where n represents the number of preceded boots). Or: journalctl --list-boot to find a problematic boot and its ID and display logs. Logs will help us to understand what's going on...

It's probably not stuck - when I press ESC nothning happend. There is no output from PC = monitor says no signal. When I run journalctl -b-1 - I see logs from yesterday's successfull boot, not from the one which failed today.

journalctl --list-boot:

I have no idea what is this. The time is not correct - 2016-06-16 19:23:48 - now it's 17:45

This is a very general descrition of the problem. Yor computer can have billions of reasons not to boot, it can be a harware proble or a software problem as well.
