When it boots, please press the right arrow key and view the verbose boot process. See where it gets stuck and let us know. We'll try to proceed from there.

I'm guessing something went wrong during the installation. The 'fast TSC calibration failed error' doesn't mean anything. It's a vestigial error. If possible, please look at some logs: /var/log/messges , dmesg. Also, it would be better to actually add the information to your question description rather than comments. It makes it easier for someone looking at this first time to understand your issue if he doesn't have to follow the entire comment chain.
