I recently did a fairly substantial update, including a new kernel (3.18.12). I didn't see any errors in the emerge output.

I rebooted, and got to a blinking cursor on a blank page, which stayed there, blinking, for at least 10 minutes.

I have recompiled the kernel, re-run grub2-install and grub2-mkconfig, and verified that the boot partition (/dev/sda1) is marked as bootable in parted.

On the off-chance it might help, I even filmed the "boot" process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Il30QqnFLE

What am I overlooking?

... unfortunately, I'll be unable to try much rebooting today (Friday, 5/15), due to work; I can still post information (sshd is running fine).

Well, something's wrong with grub2, perhaps reinstalled it on the wrong partition?

I have it installed on my MBR. If you have it half on MBR and half on partition MBR, it could get confused like this.

I don't think I've got it split up (or at all; I certainly don't think I've told it to do weird things).

But, if there's something off:

Code:

home ~ # ls -Rl /boot
/boot:

home ~ # mount /boot
home ~ # mount | grep boot
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext2 (rw,noatime)
home ~ # grub2-install /dev/sda1

grub2-install: warning: File system `ext2' doesn't support embedding.
grub2-install: warning: Embedding is not possible.  GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists.  However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
grub2-install: error: will not proceed with blocklists.
home ~ # grub2-install /dev/sda #NOTE: I have done this several times before, with the exact same output as below

minnmass,

The BIOS thinks that the hard drive is not bootable. Its not even trying to load grub, then falls back to network booting.

Are you using the BIOS in UEFI or Legacy Mode?
Are you using an MSDOS or GPT partition table?

Ah, sorry; completely misunderstood.

Actually, it does that normally, and I've never cared enough to try to figure out how to disable network boot (or, I poked at it, and the option wasn't obvious in BIOS, one of the two; after looking through again now, I'm fairly certain it was the latter).

I'm 95% sure Legacy Mode; I don't think my BIOS even knows what a EUFI is.

minnmass,

All that looks good. You have just reinstalled grub too.
I wonder if you have half an old grub and half a new one. That sometimes works and sometimes not.

To make sure your grub comes from a single build get into your chroot,
be sure that /boot is mounted.
emerge -1 grub
This will update your /boot correctly.

Reinstall grub to the MBR.

If this still fails, post your grub.cfg

minnmass,

That all looks to be good.

Do you have ony external storage devices connected?
USB sticks, USB/Firewire/eSATA ... HDD?

Depending on your BIOS, they can all cause devices to be renumbered.

... does a NAS drive count?

The only storage devices connected to the computer are inside the case, which I haven't cracked open since long before this whole thing started.

/me double checks, just in case I forgot something...

No, wait: I _do_ have this external BluRay drive plugged in, but it's been plugged in for several reboots now (long enough that I'd forgotten it was there). Surely that can't be the problem.

/me unplugs USB drive, reboots...

GRUB loaded, and "stuff" started scrolling by, and the screen went blank; oh, goody, I get to figure out what I did to screw up the video out.

But, it's booting! Thank you!

minnmass,

Normally optical drives don't count ...

I'm sorry to be whimsical, but I love the title of this topic in the forums list. The "Wha" at the end is really funny.
