Default [Q] Custom ROMs dont work

Hello guys,
my friend has a Galaxy S Advanced GT-9070, and he had really bad stock ROM which came built in with the phone,
and i wanted to upgrade his ROM for MIUI or whatever..
So I flashed him CWM and tried some ROMs.
The ROMs flashed properly, but the phone got stuck on the boot logo each time I tried to turn it on.
I did wait a long time, about 2 hours, and I do have experience (successful one) with flashing ROMs on other phones.

Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

Any kind of help will be appreciated.

Give more details.
What CWM, what ROM'S do you flashed, did you wipe all with a clean flash?

You did factory reset? And bad stock rom was? JB or GB? You can't flash JB+ ROMs over GB.

Had the same problem for months due to faulty sd card. Try a different one.
