Redhat 8.0 Boot problem

I installed redhat 8.0 on AMD athlon/ASUS A7N266. Initially had problem with grub .92 but after installing .93 it started booting but the system hangs at
checking root file system.

Any inputs pls...

did you fill your /root drive
I downloaded a bunch of files to root instead of partition home and it hung at boot. may be worth checking?

1. It is a fresh there is no question of filling the /root.
2. All the steps till "checking root file system" are done in order.

Thanks for your replies...
