Yes Liam, I was wondering too about that too but the solution you and 
NoOp suggested doesn't ...."jive" (match, correlate, agree, correspond, 
sync, square,...) with the fact that Emmanuel had 2 exactly similar 
computers, one working, one not.

Now, this I almost suggested that Emmanuel reinstall grub - grub-install 
/dev/sda - as it could be, but quite unlikely, a faulty installation of 
grub. Liam, could could check on your PowerEdge 600SC installation which 
version of grub you're using (grub-install -v)? Thanks.

Ah, well, let's see if we hear more from Emmanuel.
