It sounds like the kernel never completes booting - due you get to a text screen
with a blue background and a white dialog box in the middle of the screen?
You are correct: the kernel never completes booting. The screen is black with
white text - no blue and no dialog box.
This sounds like a kernel issue - reassigning.
