Autostart Kodi not working

I’m having some trouble to enable the autostart from Kodi.

Within the dietpi-config i enabled the autostart of Kodi, but somehow when i boot my Odroid XU4, the boot process seems to hang on the mounting of my two hdd’s. afterwards the cursor just blinks. (see attachment)

From my laptop, i can manually sign in using putty and issue the “startkodi” command, which enabled Xorg and boots Kodi.
Does anybody have a lead on where to look?
