Hi Nilesh

Grub (no grub2 here) config file does not contain "quiet" nor "modules="
options. I have added verbose option to existing "rootfstype=ext4" and
"single" ones already present for the "fallback" entry.

Here is the trace of the boot:
loading modules		[busy]
eth0: RTL8102e [...]
input: PC Speaker [...]
phy0: Selected rate control algorythm "minstrel"
Registered led device: b43-phy0::tx
Registered led device: b43-phy0::rx
Registered led device: b43-phy0::radio
Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [Features: PMLS, Firmware-ID:FW13]
cfg80211: World regulatory domain updated
	(start_freq - end-freq @ bandwith),(max_antenna_gain,max_eirp)
	(2402000kHz - 2472000kHz @ 40000),(300mBi,2000mBm)
	(2457000kHz - 2482000kHz @ XXXXX),(300mBi,2000mBm)
	(2474000kHz - 2494000kHz @ XXXXX),(300mBi,2000mBm)
	(5170000kHz - 5250000kHz @ XXXXX),(300mBi,2000mBm)
	(5735000kHz - 5835000kHz @ XXXXX),(300mBi,2000mBm)
and it freezes there
(XXXX on the four las lines because I forgot to note exactly the bandwith)

Seeing that I have deactivated wireless in the BIOS an there is the
trace of the boot:
loading modules		[busy]
eth0: RTL8102e [...]
input: PC Speaker [...]
scsi 4:0:0:0 Direct-Access Generic-Multi-Card 1.00 PQ:0 ANSI:0 CCS
sd 4:0:0:0 Attached scsi generic sg1 type 0
sd 4:0:0:0 [sdb] Attached scsi removable disk
And it freezes there

here are parts of my rc.conf:
MODULES= !usblp !mii !r8169 !pcspkr !snd-mixer-oss !snd-pcm-oss
!snd-hwdep !snd-page-alloc !snd-pcm !snd-timer !snd !snd
-gda-codec !snd-hda-intel !soundcore acpi-cpufreq speedstep-lib
cpufreq-performance cpufreq-ondemand cpufreq-conservative
cpufreq-powersave cpufreq-userspace mii r8169 pcspkr snd-mixer-oss
snd-pcm-oss snd-hwdep snd-page-alloc snd-pcm snd-timer snd snd-gda-codec
snd-hda-intel soundcore

here are parts of my mkinitcpio.conf:
MODULES"ahci ehci-hcd uhci-hcd ext4 vfat intel_agp drm i915"
HOOKS="base udev keymap autodetect pata scsi sata usbinput filesystems

Thanks for any clue.
