|Summary||0015106: System fails to boot after update to 6.10|
|Description||I recently performed a yum update on a number of systems running CentOS 6.9. After the upgrade to kernel 2.6.32-754.2.1.el6.x86_64 all systems are experiencing regular crashes on bootup. The Grub menu will appear but if 2.6.32-754.2.1.el6.x86_64 is booted the system will stop with a blank screen and a white block cursor in the upper left corner. The system is non-responsive (no Ctrl-Alt-Del, no SSH access) and has to be powered down physically. After several power cycles the system will occasionally boot correctly.|
Booting with the previous kernel (2.6.32-696.30.1.el6.x86_64) via Grub allows the system to boot reliably.
|Steps To Reproduce||Power cycle the system and allow Grub to attempt to boot kernel 2.6.32-754.2.1.el6.x86_64. The system will hang approximately 80% of the time.|
|Additional Information||Booting with noquiet shows no output if the system hangs.|
Hardware is identical for all affected machines, an Advantech ARK-1122C industrial PC with an Intel Atom N2600 processor. Approx 15 machines have shown the same behaviour.
Identical hardware running CentOS 7 (3.10.0-862.9.1.el7.x86_64) behaves normally.
