Is it possible that you have a /boot partition that get's mounted over
the real /boot?
I noticed looking at your grub.conf that it tells something about your
server not having a separate /boot partition. So everything is setup to
be on the / partition. If, for some unknown reason, you do have a /boot
partition that gets mounted, all changes to the kernels and grub.conf
will be on that partition but at boot time grub will look at the /
partition where no changes occurred.
Uhm, is it understandable what I just wrote?
