Hi Israel. The links you were providing me dealing with removing catalyst drivers and last message on the terminal during the boot is 'virtual Ethernet', so I guess problem with VMware. I just tried to make a log file, but failed.
Dmesg > ~/dmesg.log
Bash: /root/dmesg.log: read-only file system
How do I write to the file system? I am also not sure how to transfer the log file to my tablet if I am able to generate the file. All ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks

It hangs on 'virtual Ethernet', I have VMware installed. I have athlon 5350 apu, 64-bit, so radeon 3R video chip in it. I am using proprietary catalyst drivers. Latest lubuntu lts 14.04.01. So I guess that is VMware issue and probably it conflicts with catalyst drivers. What would you do next? Thanks a bunch
