Ubuntu Pi-Hole VM stuck on boot after host reboot

I stopped my proxmox running pfsense and pihole to add some ram and after the reboot the machine pihole running on Ubuntu will not start.
I did have some trouble with this VM because it would also not shut down so i force shut the host. (pfsense shut down just fine, only pihole had this problem both on shutdown as well as on boot).
I don't know is shutting it down like that could have created this problem but i had no choice because it would not turn off no matter what.
Anyway on reboot it gets stuck here:

Any help or possible things i can try?
Should i write a thread on the ubuntu forums or is there a well followed reddit about this?

It's not a huge deal, it's my home server, but i don't feel like configuring it from scratch.

Thanks in advance.
