    RHEL5-Boot Error


    After installing RHEL5 and doing a yum update comand I did a reboot and the screen froze after showing the below error:

    Booting 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-128.1.1.e15)'

    root (hd0,0)
    Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

    Red Hat nash version 5.1.19.6 starting
    Does anyone have an idea on how to troubleshoot this so I can get into workstation?

    Sounds like there is a problem with the kernel that might have been installed during the update. When the system boot at the first screen hit tab and choose an older kernel to boot. then you should be able to remove the failed kernel and install it again. Rinse and repeat.
