Boot screen stuck
This is a snapshot of what the boot screen looks like when it hangs.
Not sure if this is relevant, but I'm using a QNIX QX2710 monitor which does not have EDID. That has not caused a problem in a LONG time, but just in case it might be relevant.
This might be related to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1461337. A fix for that bug should be showing up in the 4.11.5 build so it would be worth testing that when the build finishes.
Still broken with kernel-core-4.11.5-200.fc25.x86_64 :(
Bisection is going to be your best option to figure out which commit broke it unfortunately. I'd encourage you to test a rawhide kernel as well to see if something hasn't made it to stable yet.
No problems since upgrading to Fedora 26.
I'm okay with closing this if it does not seem to be a common issue.
