Can you post a picture?

Also, try booting with flag "-v" and tell us what that says when/if it stops.

Possibly one of 2 things:

 

1) You did not install AHCI SATA drivers during installation.

2) Your mainboard is set to boot SATA as IDE instead of AHCI (Change to AHCI in BIOS)

Still no luck did what you said , there seems to be no logic to this,  all i get is a continuous spin of wheel for an hour, surely it couldnt take this long to boot  ?

 

1) You did not install AHCI SATA drivers during installation.  check

2) Your mainboard is set to boot SATA as IDE instead of AHCI (Change to AHCI in BIOS) check

 

i`ve tried      -v          also      -v -x   (no luck)

 

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me
