i'm game to help you out but i think the folks on the list would need a
bit more info your setup, like hardware specs etc. also if you could
post the output of a "dmesg." also, are you trying to boot off GENERIC
or is this a custom kernel? If custom, try booting off GENERIC.
finally, i would post the "uname" of the release that boots fine.
