Greatings all Pi eaters!

Got the latest Pi "Raspbian Buster full" on a 16 gig SD card but it hangs apx 50% of the time at boot right after log messages disappear.

One monitor has a valid HDMI signal but totally black screen.

The other flashes with warning of no HDMI signal.

If I pull the power ... eventually it goes ok until next reboot.

How can I display boot log or keep on screen to see what happened?
