You might want to add a "console=ttyO0" to the append line in

Yes, about 4 of them including Black and Green, I don't use hdmi or GUIs though
I found that adding "console=tty00" made the initial text boot screen
appear each time I tried, but the GUI still failed to work. I then tried
the server version of Fedora 23 with "console=tty00". Sometimes I saw
the text boot screen for a few seconds, and sometimes I didn't. Either
way I was left with a black screen at the end of the boot process. I
know the boot had completed, as I could use SSH to connect - although
not log in, since the initial setup had not been completed.
I tried editing the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow to remove the root
password, and I tried to allow password free login in the sshd_config,
but I still couldn't use SSH to log on.
