Based on the error message you get before the Ubuntu "loading" starts this thread might be of some help: Why does "drm:vmw_host_log [vmwgfx]] *ERROR* Failed to send host log message" show up and what can I do to fix it?

Additionally I believe you can hit the Escape key once the loading starts to get a running of the boot process, which might give more info on any other possible errors.
