Comment 1 for bug 745358

I noticed this today. However, it doesn't seem to be a Linux Kernel issue. It appears to be a grub2 issue. When you boot, press and hold shift until the boot menu appears. Press 'e' when you see the menu list and find where it has 'quiet splash vt.handoff=7'. Delete that part and press Ctrl+x to boot that.

It seems that vt.handoff=7 breaks the boot. It's added by grub by the splash option. Removing these fixed the issue for me. If it works for you, please let me know and I'll toss this bug report where it belongs (assuming this is the issue).
