Looks like silo wasn't installed correctly. Try booting into the
installer again, drop to a shell, mounting your rootfs. Doing "chroot
/mnt/ /bin/bash" (where /mnt is the dir you mounted your rootfs on), and
then run "silo -f". Don't forget to logout of the chroot and unmount it.
The reboot and see how that does.
