Comment 30 for bug 445852

I had exactly the same problem (boot stall) on an Asus eee 900. After 2 weeks of use, i got a grub -error: "error: biosdisk read error" and the system become completely useless, pending a disk wipe and full reinstall.
Similar situations are reported on:
considered a duplicate of this bug.
But I do not see the grub-error problem reported here. May this be a different bug?
