Hardware freezes on Dell Optiplex 320 while booting (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=499204)
 
Steps tried:

Install from centos 5.5 x86_64 disc, locks up after reboot at GRUB (FAILS)

Boot centos 5.5 x86_64 install drop to shell and chroot (WORKS)

Boot fedora 13 isolinux disc, choose boot hard disk, launches centos 5.5 grub
(WORKS)

Compiled and installed grub package from fedora 13 on centos 5.5 x86_64 same
problem. (FAILS)

Boot fedora 13 isolinux disc, choose boot hard disk, launches newer grub
installed on centos (WORKS)

Installed fedora 13 x86_64 default settings for disk layout. (WORKS)

Looking for advice on getting this hardware to boot unattended.

If I understand the situation correctly, you can boot Fedora13 without
any extra steps. Then, can you add a stanza for CentOS in the F13's
grub.conf file and boot from there? Or use chainloader if CentOS has
grub installed in its partition.

What does "FAILS" actually mean? I assume that you are only getting to
the grub menu when booting from an F13 CD and chainloading to the
CentOS grub.

If my assumption about the grub menu is correct, one of your grub
stages must be broken. Have you tried re-installing grub with
grub-install or at the grub cli?

What is the output of "fdisk -l", "cat /etc/fstab", and "cat
/boot/grub/device.map"?

Grub conf fine, take HD out and put in machine with different bios all is fine.
