I encounterd the same problem with an machine w/ a broken disk.

The machine seems to hang when EVMS starts loading. But it did continue, but very very slowly. There where numerous I/O errors printed on the screen.

Some posible solutions:
* Let EVMS detecting stop after the first I/O error
* a no-evms or do-not-probe-disks option at the bootloader
* detect broken disks using smartmontools and blacklist them

This was using the 6.06.1 LiveCD for x86 on a HP Compaq notebook. The disk contained 1 NTFS partition.
