Go from Snow Leopard to Mavericks, but 10.6.8 hangs @white logo screen

I've tried several times to upgrade from Snow Leopard 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 so I can get up to Mavericks. Every time I get 10.6.8 installed, the box won't finish booting. It just sits at the white Apple screen with logo.  No kernel panic, no black screen showing what's going on. Suggestions?
