Description of problem:
I have installed ROSA 2012.1 Fresh x64 on HP ProBook 6465b.
After installing the update, including a new kernel I have no possibility to use the graphical mode.
On a new kernel I see that proprietary video driver was not installed and the boot process stuck before reaching the KDM. With XFdrake I have installed the driver, and the boot process gos on. But after starting KDM when I have to enter password the system hangs tightly.
On old kernel, despite the proprietary driver installed system, boot process stuck before reaching the KDM, stopping in the text.
Here is the diagnostic conclusions of commands for the old kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

FOR OLD KERNEL
Boot process is frozen on the such stage - see attach Ctrl-F12 and Ctrl-F1
I attached the output of rpm -qa | grep kernel.
FOR NEW KERNEL kdm is starting, cursor is blinking. But I have no reaction for any operations with keyboard and touchpad
ON A NEW KERNEL (additional information).
If I use multi-user.target instead of graphical.target I can to boot correctly in text mode. After running startx KDE session is starting, but keyboard and touchpad not functional.
I think I have some misconfiguration for keyboard and mouse for graphical mode with new kernel.
P.S. I could not to mount another logical disk with NTFS.
As I understand it maybe incorrect updating kernel packages.
I see that I have such situation on the may (some month ago). But I could not understand how I could update kernel yesterday?
I have strange situation.
As I have unworking system I have done such steps:
1. Delete kernel 3.8.12
2. execute urpm-reposync
3. execute urpmi --auto-update
And I have no packages of 3.8.12 kernel at all. I use yandex mirror
Now I have only 3.6.10 kernel on my system
Graphical mode is not working
urpmq kernel- -a
[root@freshx32 cache]# urpmq kernel -a
You need wait new fglrx driver appearing in repo - 13.200-5. Check this via
urpmf -mf dkms-fglrx-13.200.5
If driver appear, run XFdrake and install it and update system.
