Yes systemd is on this machine.  I haven't made any changes to either 
of the HDD on this machine.  To be honest I wouldn't know what the 
UUID's were originally, if they had changed.

The thing that bothers me most is that when this occurs, the only way 
I can get back to a working system is to go through the root log in 
process.  It is as if the machine records that the start job has not 
finished, preventing me from bypassing it.

Question: Where could I find how this process is triggered ?
