Re: Boot failure between grub and kernel?
First of all Happy New Year.
I'm running Debian Wheezy and the past month I have this strange problem
when doing a cold boot. The system hangs right after the GRUB2 selection
menu, before any md raid arrays have been started.
After the GRUB2 selection menu the screen only displays "Loading, please
wait..." and hangs indefinitely. Hitting the reset button works most of
the time, but occasionally additional attempts are needed.
In a normal situation the screen would display the same "Loading, please
wait..." message, but immediately followed by the messages that the md
raid arrays have been started (Still "loading please wait" message on
top, which disappears as the screen starts scrolling) and after that all
other messages from a normal boot.
Do you have the 'quiet' option on the kernel command line? Like:
linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-1-amd64 root=LABEL=HD502HJ_2.02 ro vga=791
nouveau.modeset=0 resume=LABEL=6Y080P0.05 quiet
I did, but have turned that off now and await another occurance of the
hang to see if the results are different...
