Comment 26 for bug 158918

Done (obviously). Note that this was after reverting back to the original initrd and rerunning grub-install to make it stick - dunno if that matters much to you.

Oh, and I have one other data point for you - I was unable to reproduce this problem on a Dell Poweredge T100 (Xeon E3110, ICH9R). Following the steps in post #6, the system boots sa you'd expect.

Is there anything else I can grab that might help?
