[gNewSense-users] Very Slow Boot

Hi, Can anyone help?

I have just installed Debian Squeeze with the Libre Linux kernel on my Yeeloong 
8089_B 8.9", but it takes 2 hours to boot.

I used the instructions here:

How I installed
I booted from USB and started the installer. During the install I used "guided 
partition". Then I deleted the primary partition / which was 350MB and split it 
in two parts: 50MB primary partition for mounting /boot, and 300MB extended 
partition for mounting / (root).

When I installed the kernel I did an apt-cache search and installed 
After that I ran "apt-get update --fix-missing". At this point I saw there was 
a newer kernel so I installed linux-image-3.0.4-libre-lemote.

Later, the instructions advised me to install GRUB. So I did that. Now my start 
up menu has three options:

1 Boot with GRUB (grub.elf)
2 Debian GNU with 2.6.38-libre-lemote
3 Debian GNU with 2.6.38-libre-lemote single

Numbers 2 and 3 do not run. There is an error:
grub "error: you need to load linux first"

Number 1 takes two hours to start! When it does load I see the Linux Libre logo 
(Freedo penguin having a wash) and then it loads really quickly.

Can anyone help?
