    Hi. No idea yet! During the boot sequence press esc to see the system messages. Annotate the last lines before the system hangs and post here.

    read closely the sections 2, 3, 4 and 6in the hints for new to
    openSUSE folks in this thread http://tinyurl.com/6jwtg9

    it is absolutely required to have a 100% perfect disk to install
    from...if not, there will be problems...thousands of posts here prove
    that..

    check the disk is perfect...if it is, then tell us what you see during
    the boot process....like, do you see the very first screen (like in
    http://en.opensuse.org/INSTALL_Local#Installation) or just what do you
    see..

    and, as the other poster mentioned, if you press Esc you might see
    some words flash by and then a freeze...what is the last line written
    when the freeze occurs?

    oh, and welcome to our community....
