3 wks ago I added a second HDD to a friend's 2007 HP desktop (don't have sys specs on hand, but can get if needed). Installation went flawlessly, XP boots fine, etc. When GRUB bootscreen appears, if you let the countdown timer run down the system boots fine. If, however, you press 'Enter' to boot the selected entry (PCLOS is default), boot fails with kernel panic. So long as you let the timer run down and boot default selection, it boots just fine. Any idea what might cause this?
I must note that the friend is fine with it, so long as PCLinux boots. This is not causing any usability issues for him, I'm just curious about why GRUB would exhibit this behavior.
