Tim, these are not grub problems at all.  Looks like splash scripts and 
worse, some disk uuid errors probably fstab itself. I think there are 
far more people on this list who are more proficient on this than me and 
I like to refrain from commenting with my lesser knowledge on these matters.

By this reply, I like to enlist others who read this to help out Tim.

Sorry Tim, I have to pass the baton.
