can't get past "Welcome to GRUB!" screen (now with grub.cfg)

I have tried to install the previous 2 versions of crunchbang on my netbook (dell mini 10) and each time it reboots the screen hangs on "Welcome to GRUB!" If anyone has any suggestions (or someone who has run into a similar problem) please help. I will post my grub.cfg when I reinstall crunchbang after I finish typing this

EDIT: here is my /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Re: can't get past "Welcome to GRUB!" screen (now with grub.cfg)

Did a quick Google search: http://www.google.com/search?q=dell+min … me+to+grub

Seems there are 2 leading possibilities:
1) Grub2 doesn't play well with your current BIOS. Upgrading your BIOS might fix this.
2) You're encountering a bug found in Grub2 that should be fixed in version 1.99

In either case, grub-legacy might work for you. Can you successfully install and boot into other Linux distributions that use Grub2? That's how one user on linuxquestions.org figured out it wasn't the distribution's fault: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions … ost4204974
