I wonder if there is bug in the hfsplus module. You can check it out
with grub-fstest command:

sudo ./grub-fstest /dev/sda3 ls /

This would list the content of root directory.

outputs nothing, just a blank line, for /dev/sda2 which is my hfsplus (it works fine for fat16, ext3 partitions).

You can also create a small hfs+ image and test it with grub-fstest,
if it does have problem, you can upload the image for me to test.

not sure how to create a hfs+ image... the one I have is many gigabytes and came with the laptop (I just shrunk it to 30GB to fit my linuxes, is all). Does Linux or MacOSX provide a way to create a small HFSJ image? (also I could try going to MacOSX and turning off journalling and see if it affects grub2's ability to read it at all, perhaps - although for just reading, not writing, I doubt it makes a significant difference)

cpuid would check if cpuid exists and set return code, there is no output.

oh, okay, then it's just the command's help description that was confusing me

The result is lspci is a little strange. Is there any output before
hanging ?

no, I hit enter and never get back a prompt or any output

When you use video=efifb or video=vesafb. It enum pci to get
the frame buffer address, if it doesn't hang there, it shouldn't hang
here as well.

odd, because that definitely didn't hang (when loading linux-2.6.25 that is).

reboot could be a firmware related issue, I can check it out.

okay, maybe it is

Oh btw, do you compile from source or use the binary version ?

I compile grub2 from source
