We have difficulties here to help you, since you don't tell us the text that showed up during booting phase.
In order to do that, allow me to give you hints:
- Press space or escape when Linux is about to boot. That would show you the GRUB (Linux boot loader) OS selection screen.
- Make sure it highlight the upper most entry. Use up and down arrow to move cursor if neccessary
- Press "e" (that is, "e" character). Find the line that contains the words "quiet" and/or "splash". Remove any of their occurences.
- Press Ctrl+X to boot. That should shows you the boot message explicitly now.
I guess we need more or less 20 lines before Linux hangs. You could write the messages down or simply use digital camera and get a picture. Then kindly show us
I hope I explain the steps clearly
