Try to enable boot logging so you can give us more information:

sudo touch /var/log/boot
sudo echo 'BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=yes' > /etc/default/bootlogd

Please don't post the entire console output, just grep it and see if you
can't find the error that is causing your terminal to pop up when you're
booting and then post that specific information to us.  With splash the
console should normally only show when there is an error, most people
don't catch that error in time.

My assumption is this could possibly be a graphics issue.  Won't know
for sure though until we get some more information because as I'm sure
you might know "it hangs" can literally mean a million and one different
