When I start my computer, after a while, I'm redirected to the dracut prompt

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel works

How reproducible: every boot

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:
When I boot on the version, I don't have any problem.
For now I'm using this version.

I didn't see any red line in journalctl. If you explain how to save this output from dracut, I may attach it to the bug report.

Please run 

# lsinitrd -k 4.3.4-300.fc23.x86_64 | grep mpt3sas
# lsinitrd -k 4.3.4-300.fc23.x86_64 | grep mpt2sas

This is checking the initrd of the last kernel version that worked for you (4.3.5 which was mentioned in the other thread) to see if it contains a particular kernel module.

If you see any output from those commands, you have hit https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1313025

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************
We apologize for the inconvenience.  There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 23 kernel bugs.
Fedora 23 has now been rebased to 4.7.4-100.fc23.  Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.
If you have moved on to Fedora 24 or 25, and are still experiencing this issue, please change the version to Fedora 24 or 25.
If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
