Boot is not going past a certain point

Apologies I haven't used Fedora in some time so I have forgotten some of the basics.

When I boot up, my system (F16) it hangs at a certain point (see attached image). It was there for 5 minutes before I pressed ctrl-alt-del and it started the shutdown process. This leads me to believe there is something going wrong with a service.

Unfortunately I notice that /var/log/boot.log is empty so I can't provide that.

What I probably should mention is that I updated this from f15. while there are still some f15 files leftover, they don't strike me as being critical system files during startup - http://pastebin.com/FvQNts5Z

Re: Boot is not going past a certain point

I think these infos might be more interesting / helpful:
Code:
yum repolist -C
uname -r
However, i guess the mix of f15 and f16 files might be the cause.
Specialy since F16 introduced the new service management, of which you think might be the cause for the issue
