[SOLVED] Vm Boot Stops at "Received request to flush runtime journal"

May 18, 2019
UPDATE: turns out it isn't getting stuck on flushing the journal. it was only not moving from the console log to the login prompt. a CTRL-ALT-F2 solved it.

If anyone can tell me how to avoid having to press CTRL-ALT-F2 I'd appreciate it.
