    Googled solutions didn't help. Everything else working very well (so far), except CPU sensor showing 19*C instead of 37*C on 'hardinfo'.

    edit the boot grub menu line to remove "quiet splash" before booting; that way you will see all the boot comments and let you know what is the problem

    Unfortunately I've never had to use grub, so I'll need to reed a manual about that, till I give any decent answer.
    My grub messages disappeared after 5 seconds and I don't know how to get them back (Page Up doesn't help).

    After about 200 seconds and later something like that appear:
    task swapon:431 blocked for more than 120 seconds
    "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel...
