Is the grub screen coming up?  You say it "just hangs" on reboot, but
presumably there are your BIOS screens first and then hopefully grub,
and then it hangs?  Or just your BIOS screens and then it dies trying to
start grub?

Which HDD (10G, 2G) is it installed on and which is it trying to boot from?
