#StackBounty: #startup #systemctl System stalled after "systemctl isolate reboot.target"

Bounty: 50

I’ve got a Fedora 30 VM running on VirtualBox. Trying to understand systemctl and run levels better, I ran

sudo systemctl isolate reboot.target

As expected, the box restarted. However, it doesn’t ever get to the login screen. Pressing Esc from the splash screen, which normally shows all of the steps in the startup process, only shows a blinking cursor.

If I restart the box again from VirtualBox, everything starts up normally.

Did restarting the box this way mess something up?
