I've just replied to Liam to check under "/run/systemd/" for .mount
and .swap units.

You can also display their contents with "systemctl cat ...".

Rather than the "noauto" and other options, you could try
"x-systemd.device-timeout=VALUE_IN_SECONDS" in "/etc/fstab". Maybe the
boot won't time out and boot'll succeed.
