I installed a brand new install of 15.10 from ISO to a VMware Fusion install 8.1.0. No issues at all.

I ran Software Updater and installed the latest updates and now on reboot it hangs with _ .

I can boot into 15.10 using the Linux 4.2.0-16-generic just fine via GRUB.

I checked VMware and there are no new updates. So I do not know where to proceed from here. I will use (16) till I can other troubleshoot further?

I am not sure if this is a Vmware issue or a (30) issue?

Thanks!

Well it appears to be a legit bug. Per these posts things seem good up to (27), then breaks after that. It looks like a fix is underway.
