More details please.  When you say "hangs", what exactly do you mean?
At what stage in the booting progress does this occur?  What happens
normally, and then what doesn't happen?

Sounds like your system is in fact booting.  What do you see on this
console?  Can you log in?  What desktop environment do you use (Gnome,
KDE, etc?)  Is the corresponding login manager running on your system?
Has it logged anything in /var/log/messages?
