It never tries to boot. Grub just sits there withe phrase (did not copy it down) where it says what version it will boot on the screen and it does nothing (locked up?) I have to <cntl><alt><del> or push a manual reset. It never tries to load the kernel. Does not matter if I try a 3.13.7 or 3.14.x, I've rebuilt them quite a few times and did all the grub2 steps, but none of the newer kernels will boot. Nothing was done to the bios. The only change was to get rid of ATI Frame buffer support as suggested upon a recent update: * Checking for suitable kernel configuration options... * CONFIG_FB_RADEON: should not be set. But it is. * Please check to make sure these options are set correctly. * Failure to do so may cause unexpected problems. James
