Re: System unable to finish loading with the current HEAD

I reverted back to kernel compiled on 1st of October and it works again,

so the problem came to be between yesterday and 1st of October. I'll give boot -v and compiling the least amount of drivers a shot.

This could be a tough one. Does it boot on an older ISO?

Sometimes having it boot with the console on the serial port yields
more information. boot -v might help in addition to that. If we can't
get any clues from that you could try compiling up a kernel with as many drivers as possible removed (leaving just the console/video/disk
driver). If it is a SMP box you could try booting with a UP kernel.
