I'm unsure that I have same issue but seems that yes. I'm unable to boot latest kernel after upgrade to 16.10, It's just hangs with no disk activity, all latest updates where installed using 4.4.0-59 (it boots properly) but no luck. I also tried latest nouveau, latest available nvidia driver from driver manager and latest available nvidia driver from nvidia site (375.26) but still unable to boot 4.8 kernel :( Can anyone help or maybe additional info needed ?

The new 4.8 kernel seemed to take ages to boot and appears to have hanged. I have managed to boot the system with the older 4.4 kernels from 16.04 just fine without any problems from systemd etc.. Please fix this so I can stop selecting the kernel manually on each boot. --- ApportVersion: 2.20.3-0ubuntu8 Architecture: amd64 CurrentDesktop: Unity DistroRelease: Ubuntu 16.10 HibernationDevice: RESUME=UUID=1147110e-7ff9-41b0-a446-ac19e62a85c2 InstallationDate: Installed on 2016-02-19 (236 days ago) InstallationMedia: Ubuntu 15.10 "Wily Werewolf" - Release amd64 (20151021) IwConfig: lo no wireless extensions. enp4s0 no wireless extensions. eno1 no wireless extensions.
