Ok, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this here... let me know...
I have tested this one and I found that to solve this you need to change particle type manually. When you change the particle type to hair the particle type is set to "path" on "render as" option in the render dropdown inside the particle system. You need to set the particles to halo again and they will show up in the viewport again.
