Poweredge 2850 cannot boot past GRUB

We have just yum updated centos 5.9 with standard repos.  Since the update, the server hangs on boot and shows the attached console image that halts the bootup when starting the grub config.

Thank you.  Any help is appreciated.

Your update whacked the boot.

What is the drive layout? Does it use raid or you have independent drives.  Boot the system using the centos disk and see whether the harddrives are seen.

Was the system booting from the network?
If so, check your Boot server.

Thank you.  That appears to be exactly what happened.

I tried the centos disk for a repair attempt, but was unable to get cursor control (directly on console connection) on the Centos splash screen.

I have done a full -re-install of centos with updates and the server runs fine.  Of course a lot more work now.

Thank you.  This case is solved.
