    Kali freeze at boot loader after upgrade

    Hello, i am new to the forum, i have seen an archive thread similar but its solution did not work for me.

    I have been using kali 4.17.0 with no issues, Then i upgraded to 4.18.0 and i started getting " a start job is running for dev-disk (1:30mins)"

    https://ibb.co/NNyqbSR

    and it stalls at failed dependency

    https://ibb.co/S5cS0jG

    At the grub prompt
    > set root=(hd0,1)
    >linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.18.0-kali2-amd64 root=/dev/sda1
    >initrd /boot/initrd.img-4.18.0-kali2-amd64
    >boot

    this takes me back to several "a start job is running"

    https://ibb.co/VBq237n
    https://ibb.co/S5cS0jG

    then freezes at dependency failed

    changed lines at the grub menu as well to "rw init=/bin/bash" and still frozen at failed dependency

    below are few other screen grabs
