I installed 2.6.32-358.14.1.el6.CentOS.plus.x86_64 today and had some boot issues.
After rebooting, the system locked immediately after the Asus motherboard logo. I thought at first that it was a hardware issue because it didn’t appear that grub even loaded. I wasn’t even able to get into the BIOS to change the boot order so it appeared that it was a hardware issue. I reset the MB BIOS and rebooted, which allowed me to get into the BIOS. Everything looked normal. I then tried to boot and the same issue. I repeated the BIOS clear and this time got to grub and let it load the latest kernel (2.6.32-358.14.1.el6). It hung again. I repeated the BIOS clear, go to the grub screen, selected the previous kernel and everything was fine.
Once I got to the OS, I removed the “rhgb quiet” from grub.conf from the newest kernel. Rebooted. Hung again immediately after loading. The weird thing is that I couldn’t just power down and get back to grub; I
had to clear the BIOS again before I could even load grub to select the previous kernel.
Anyone else experiencing issues with the latest kernel? Any idea why it seems to even corrupt the BIOS?
