Edit: When using the latest mainline kernel from here (3.14rc5 at the time of writing) all the problems go away. I'm hoping that this means I simply have to wait for 3.14 to release and hit [core] eventually. Also, my system clock *was* set incorrectly, because "ntpd -q" didn't print any sort of warning when I forgot the "-g" parameter.
Original message preserved in case anyone has the same problem:
On a fresh install, if I boot the latest kernel (3.13.5-1 at the time of writing) booting will stop midway through the systemd startup sequence. The specific line it ends on varies, sometimes it's "Starting Sound Card", other times it's "Starting Load/Save Random Seed." The system cursor stop blinking.
Adding debug to my boot parameters gives a large number of errors along the line of "Assertion: dual_timestamp_is_set has failed in sd_event_now_get_monotonic".
After this boot continues for a while, before freezing as described, without any sort of error or noteworthy output (as far as I can tell.)
Using the latest lts kernel (3.10.32-1) boot does finish, although it gives the same Assertion error as above. Also, the i915 module gives the error "preliminary hardware support disabled" and no modesetting is done. When trying to start X there are "No screens found"
As far as I can tell, the system clock and all related config files are configured correctly. All packages are up to date.
The system is an Intel NUC DN2820FYKH with a Bay Trail Celeron N2820 processor. For full specs:

I have the same device, with the same issues. I've never tried to use X server though so can't confirm that. I just tried 3.13.6 and its not booting again. Its running headless and haven't had chance to plug in a display yet but it seems to of caused the same or similar issue.
Heres what I see after everything > 3.12.9 . It has a blinking cursor underneath that freezes, hdd light then stays on solid and doesn't do anything.
Sort of solved it, see first post.
Is there any cause or better solution? - I'm experiencing the same issue on Ubuntu 15.10 - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour … ug/1521749
