A "hard shutdown" such as this can cause filesystem corruption.
I have had cases with Fedora where it hangs up during booting/startup. After restarting one or more times, it eventually worked. Never found the cause---switched to Debian-based systems (Ubuntu, Mepis) and never had this kind of issue again.
