I suppose you can remove the splash and see where it is getting stuck. If it's on the first reboot after windows (ubuntu installation) refer to this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10089820&postcount=8). It shows how to add 'nomodeset' but you can also use it to remove quiet splash.

Give that a go.

If it's the boot following the install, refer to post #1 of that thread.
