Latest: I tried turning off "quiet splash" in Grub. This gave me nothing, no boot messages, just a blank screen.
Then I tried booting in "compatibility mode", got messages, the hang occurs at "Begin: preconfiguring network".
But don't bother answering, I've given up on 64-bit and have installed 32-bit, which is working as expected.
