You can try hold POWER buttton when you are booting, qi will make kernel more 
verbose so you can see the actual error.

Also please make sure you have append-GTA02 whith rootwait parameter on your 
SD card:

cd /boot
echo "console=tty0 loglevel=3 rootwait" > append-GTA02

you can also try e.g. rootdelay=10 instead of rootwait.
