Unable to boot up after installation no error reported just a blinking cursor (Using IBM Blade HS21 - Video Card ATi ES1000)

Bug #211185 reported by jcombalicer on 2008-04-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
grub (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The installation process went perfectly well even using LVM or normal ext3 partition.

The only problem that we encounter is after restarting the server, we are using IBM Blade HS21 on IBM S Chassis Blade (ATi ES 1000), SAS Drive.

All local and network drive found and reformatted as ext3.

After restarting it doesnt boot up only a blinking cursor shows up.

Even tried the x64 version.

The weird part of this is SUSE works perfectly well. We also tried Debian latest release and Several version of Ubuntu both x86 and x64, the installer process is ok the only problem is after the restart process. it cant boot. just a blinking cursor

I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.
