Strange. Perhaps just a network issue - try again tomorrow.

Thats interesting. Enable logging on your serial console. Let it boot
and hang, then press enter to get a bash prompt.

Wait 5 minutes - the kernel may detect a hung task and spit out a load
of diagnosis. If this happens, end the session and send me the log.

If everything stays quiet after 5 minutes, run:
echo t > /proc/sysrq-trigger

This will output a lot.

Then send me the log.
