It's probably a device driver probe problem although it's impossible to tell without more info. Enable options DDB, boot -vs, wait for the hang. Hit CTRL-ALT-ESC to go into DDB and type tr to get a backtrace. Copy the trace info (serial console is best for this). Hit c for continue, wait, repeat. Chances are you'll still be at the same backtrace. If so, then this is the code that's hanging.
