Eclipse hangs on startup

I have problem with running my Eclipse. I tried 3.7, 4.2 and 4.3 versions with java 6 and java 7. Nothing can help me. It shows me popup screen but it doesn't start to load( I dont have chance to choose workspace).
Starting it with

-debug -console
parameters shows that it stops running in this moment:

Time to load bundles: 10
Starting application: 6374

I have started JVisualVM but I cannot observe anything special. There are no deadlocks etc.


My observations were to deep... After ~60s pid of eclipse is dead.

Edit 2

Now it stops on

Time to load bundles: 8
org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration: The org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration bundle was activated before the state location was initialized. Will retry after the state location is initialized.
Starting application: 3557

Edit 3

I have managed to start it but only with
parameter and with choosing workspace from command line

Answer Source

I've had exactly the same problem and could solve it using the answer here which works by moving the projects out of the workspace and back in again after Eclipse has been started and stopped.

Starting it with -clean -data started eclipse but whenever I switched the workspace using the eclipse gui it wouldn't load.
