Thin Clients & GRUB Loading stage2.. (hung)

  • This is an interesting situation no doubt…
    An institution I work at has employed several hundred Dell FX170 Thin Clients (running Windows WES) which I have previously successfully uploaded and deployed. We recently upgraded the thin clients to a newer version of WES (2.0, the previous being 1.5) - The issue lies in the boot loader. After the update I see the following:

    Booting from local disk…
    PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM.
    GRUB Loading stage2…

    This is where it hangs indefinitely. I’m thinking perhaps my line of attack should be to deploy to a secondary spare drive in a desktop and remove the [FONT=Verdana][COLOR=#000000]/boot/grub/[/COLOR][/FONT][FONT=Verdana][COLOR=#000000]menu.lst [/COLOR][/FONT] as I’ve seen on other forums with general GRUB issues.
    I’m uploading & deploying as Multiple Partition Single Disk btw.
    [SIZE=2]I guess my question is why aren’t FOG and grub playing along? RAW [/SIZE]doesn’t[SIZE=2] give me much success either. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]Any enlightenment the community can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all[/SIZE]
