I did however get the system to boot by disabling the hardware detection and reinstalling the sata.i kernel. The downside is my mouse and touchpad are not configured. I am using a logitech mx300 usb mouse if anyone can give me steps to manually configure it, thanks.
I use a Logitech USB mouse similar to yours, here's the input section from my xorg.conf file, the mouse section:
# Identifier and driver
# On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
# protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:
# Option "Protocol" "Auto"
# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
# Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
# Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
# MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
# ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "Resolution" "300"
# The mouse device. The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
# which is usually a symbolic link to the real device.
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
# Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
# Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
# Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"
# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.
# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"
# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.
# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"
# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)
# Option "Emulate3Buttons"
# Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"
# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice
# Option "ChordMiddle"
Of course you'll need to be sure the relevant USB modules are loaded and running. If this is the problem you're having (do a "lsmod" to see if you have
usbcore, usbmouse, etc.) then you'll need to do some manual setup of modules.
Hope this helps a bit. Can't help but think that you might be better off just finding what's causing the hang and fixing that, may be an easier route to take.
