Well, you're narrowing it down:  it's not the kernel.  Try booting 
without "rhgb" and "quiet", by getting to the Grub menu as above, and 
using Append ("a") to get to the kernel command line, and Backspace to 
delete those options (arrow keys to skip over stuff not to delete).  
You might see something informative when booting pauses.  Also, the 
Boot Log is back, sort of, in /var/log/boot.log.  It may not show 
anything from the proper time, though, as it covers service startup and 
not what happens in the initrd "init" nash script (which I just learned 
about).
