If you boot with your current settings, what error do you get?
With the new default settings there is a Splash screen and there are NO error messages for a missing root partition.
If you restore text boot you will see them.
Which splash screen? The rainbow square from the early bootloader or the one shown when the GUI is starting? (loaded from /usr/share/plymouth/themes/pix/splash.png so your root partition must be mounted and accessable).
If the latter, try appending
to /boot/config.txt and rebooting/power cycling.
If the former, something is very wrong with your system as it would appear that the initial boot loader can't find a FAT partition to boot from.
A couple of other approaches:
- If you have access to another Pi and haven't removed the neccessary stuff from cmdline.txt you can make a serial connection between them and monitor the boot messages via that.
- Likewise if you access to a USB to 3.3v serial dongle and another computer.
- If the hang is on the desktop/gui splas screen, trry scanning your network for that Pi. If it shows up try to ping it and to connect via ssh.
