I did a clean install of Home Edition kernel 4.2 onto another partition [2] of my Dell 1525 Laptop.
rebooted a few time to test if ok.
then did a full safe upgrade to 4.8 kernel.
rebooted when finished.
that install is now hard locking on bootup , it displays Call Trace errors then hangs, no TTY
I was able to boot its older 4.2 kernel  and get LXDE.
4.8 is critically broken :(

updates more testing.

rebooted both of my sparky HE with kernel 4.8 installs.

using the following kernel parameters these results happened:
Code: [Select]
verbose = hard hang, with Call Trace[s], unplug needed
verbose = hard hang, with Call Trace[s], unplug needed
splash = blank screen, hard lockup
quiet splash = hard lock as above
quiet splash = pointer only after 3min wait, soft reset possible
quiet nosplash = hard lockup but with partial desktop panel outline onle
quiet splash irqfixup = ok

when the boot process allows I see CTRC26 pipe A [or B]  error

note: underlining is not by design

You could put your terminal output into code tags to prevent bbcode translation (causing your underline) select the terminal output and click the code link(#) and it will put you text into a code box
