    I am sorry if I am out of line here. Please let us know what OS you are using, along with the hardware specifications. Also please inform us as to the previous kernel version. Have you been able to reboot into the last kernel?

    You should start your machine with rescue mode or something like that.

    #rpm -qa | grep kernel* //list your installed kernel.

    #cat /boot/grub/grub.conf // you should set your old kernel as default. Also you can enable hiddenmenu for kernel list.

    How did you upgrade your kernel? Did you build it yourself?

    Tell us whether you can see the GRUB menu with a list of Red Hat kernels when before your new kernel attempts to boot.

    This seems to be an incomplete message Do you maybe mean that you've done a regular update? If so, do you remember the command you used to do the update?

    And again, can you see the GRUB menu when booting the machine? (I bet you can see it). The reason I'm asking is that, in the GRUB menu, you can modify your kernel command line arguments and set it to boot in single user mode, just as getrue suggests.
