[Solved] Arch hangs at boot at random points

Hello. First of all, sorry for the undescriptive title, but one of the main reasons that I came here is because of I don't know what's causing the hanging. The problem started one day to another, the pc worked well and one day I turned it on and it hanged.
At first I thought it was fsck, but doing a little boot debugging (appended "debug" to the kernel parameters) I could notice that the problem comes from somewhere else. The problem is that every time that I try again, the boot stops at a different point, so I cannot know which is exactly the problem.
I post the last 6 lines of 3 different boots (written by hand, so might have typos):

[  OK  ] Started Login Service.
[  24.258733] systemd-logind[252]: Watching system buttons on /dev/input/event2 (Sleep Button)
[  OK  ] Started GNOME Display Manager.
           Starting Accounts Service...
           Starting Authourization Manager...
[  OK  ] Started Authourization Manager.
[  OK  ] Started Accounts Service.

[  OK  ] Reached target Network.
           Starting Privoxy Web Proxy With Advanced Filtering Capabilities....
           Starting Network Time Service...
           Starting Anonymizing Overlay Network...
           Starting Samba NetBIOS name server...
[  27.601929] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: irq 51 for MSI/MSI-X
[  27.703150] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: irq 51 for MSI/MSI-X
[  27.703916] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eno1: link is not ready
[  OK  ] Started Network Time Service
_

And it never gets any further than that. The farthest it gets is "[  OK  ] Started Network Time Service". But I don't know even how to start fixing this.
Thank you very much.

If you need more logs ask for it.

I see that you are using GDM. It caused some problems recently, search on the forum for it.

Try disabling as much as you can, disable graphical.target and gdm, and enable multi-user.target and work from there to see what's causing the problem.
Slowly re-enable services again in multi-user mode, then if all goes well, disable multi-user.target and enable graphical again, and perhaps try lightdm as a display manager, just to try rule out gdm if you get to this stage.
