[SOLVED] Arch hangs at boot

Every time i start my pc, right after it passes the grub screen it will hang with this message:

Starting version 242.29-1-arch
/dev/sdb1: clean xxx/xxx files, xxx/xxx blocks

And this goes on and on and on until i spam any key on my keyboard and then it finally boots up to sddm. This started about a month ago but since it had an "easy fix" i ignored it so far but would like to fix it finally. I am running latest everything (last system update 3 days ago). Where should i start looking for the problem? I'm new to Arch and  this is the first "real" problem i got so i'm not yet good at troubleshooting

Re: [SOLVED] Arch hangs at boot

This is an issue with the kernel's early boot entropy generation, if your CPU supports it lscpu | grep rdrand gives you output, add

random.trust_cpu=on

to your kernel parameters otherwise install and enable haveged
