There are a bunch of other threads, and one with this exact question ( Boot hangs after "Checking battery state...") is closed already (this I think was not warranted), but I haven't solved my problem.

Why does ubuntu hang at "Checking battery state..." when I don't even have a laptop or a battery? I'm using a desktop computer.

    I believe the other question was closed because it had been abandoned by the original user. – belacqua May 8 '12 at 17:03
  • The problem is gone, but I don't know why, perhaps an Ubuntu update? – Victor S Jul 4 '12 at 14:46
