custom kernel failure

i have been building kernels for 8 years, but now i can't seem to get kernels later than 3.8.x to boot - they get stuck at the initramfs stage and just sit there - no error message or disk activity. has there been a change in later kernels that may cause this?
any clues what could be the issue? UEFI enabled mobo with legacy support - shouldn't be an issue, then but again don't know.

cheers.

Re: custom kernel failure

Building with PKGBUILDs or freehand?  Hint, use a PKGBUILD?

Re: custom kernel failure

Use the official kernel as a template and customize till you're content.  Works every time and all files are managed by pacman.  Everyone is happy.
