    Boot in verbose mode (command+v) and see where it freezes. It's probably an incompatible kext.

    If you haven't fixed this yet these steps should help:

    1) Login using single user mode

    2) mount -uw /

    3) rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

    4) kill -1

    Restart and set up a new admin user and then change password to get into your old user.
