Description Corey Marthaler 2008-04-10 16:31:32 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #441869 +++

Description of problem:
Every so often, I'd would notice my new SC1435s hang during boot up. I contacted
Dell and they told me to switch the order of my terminal line from 'serial
console' to 'console serial', and the caused the problem to go away.

Here's what the output looked like before the hang:

======= 
GRUB 
Loading stage2...
