As I said in a different thread, the fact it boots for the first few times but 
fails after an update *does not prove* that the bios is not at fault. All it 
proves is after the initial install, for whatever reason (luck?) your /boot 
files can be read by your bios. After an update, when new kernels are 
installed and /boot/grub/grub.conf is rewritten, it is perfectly possible, if 
your bios does suffer from this issue and you don't have a dedicated /boot 
partition, that these new files are outside the region your bios can read. 
Thus boot failure.
