Why LILO? Because the installation scripts failed to
produce a bootable system when I selected Grub. So I selected LILO and it
The update was from kernel 2.6.24-22 to 2.6.24-23. The
original installation I believe had 2.6.24-21.
One of our IT guys was able to boot the machine and manually
start some of the services so the new kernel is OK and I believe that the
problem is the MBR or something that follows LILO.

Hi I have an Ubuntu server 8.04 LTS with 2 TB (RAID 5) of
This morning I allowed the system to download and install a bunch of updates,
along them a Sun Java and a kernel update.
After the update due to some concerns about a Java application I decided to
re-boot the server and I got a Lilo error the infamous L 99 99 99 ...
Some Google postings suggested to run lilo just to make sure that the
info about the new kernel was part of the booting sequence.
After booting with a rescue disk I ran /sbin/lilo and re-boot, the Lilo problem
was gone but the system now hangs after the BIOS Data Checkup Successful
I will a appreciate any suggestions.
