Hello there,

just few things:

1. it would help if you've posted at least photo of the kernel boot freeze ;)
2. right from the wiki "NOTE! If you're using a system with LSI and/or Dell 
RAID adapters (using megaraid_sas driver) you need to manually update the 
driver version at this point! Linux ships with too old driver 
version, and it wont' work (disks won't get enabled on system startup). See 
this email for information about updating the driver version - 
3. you can try newer kernels  (like 3.2), but i would  bet my 5 pences on the 
previous point (and the Wiki)
