That sounds odd.  udev would normally be essential.

However, to stop it from the a recovery mode type install try:

update-rc.d udev disable S

I suspect however that this won't fix your issue.
udev should help you here rather than hinder you so I'm not really sure
what's gone wrong.

It's a bit hard to investigate without a keyboard though.

What did you do in the lead up to it all going wrong?  Any upgrades etc?
