Thanks! I made a mistake in the /boot/grub2/grub.cfg entry. (Forgot to
actually put in resume= ... I have now fixed that and it shows in there.

The 3.11.10 option probably ends in a kernel panic, because line 91 lacks an initrd command for this kernel entry.

To remove this from the grub menu, just rm -f the vmlinuz-3.11.10 kernel from the /boot directory. If you want you can also remove its config file. Then you can rerun: grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and it will no longer have the 3.11.10 option, just the working 3.12.5 and rescue options.

Thanks very much! This has been an enormous help!

Booting into the 3.12.5 kernel now.
