I am having the same problem with a HP Pavilion dv6505us. I turned of the rhgb 
and quiet options in grub and found it seems to be related to the touchpad as 
well although I have an external logitech wireless track ball attached that I 
have to unplug to get it to boot and I have to either touch the keyboard or 
the touchpad to get it to continue to boot.  Once it gets to the udev section 
of the boot process I can plug the mouse back in and everything seems to work 
fine.
