Which models switched to 64bit firmware? Form the looks of it, all of them are
still using EFI 1.x, does Grub2 support EFI 1.x with x86_64?

I believe the kernel version that I am running is 2.6.27.

I'll try again with the x86_64 version of Grub2 tomorrow.

I haven't been able to get the x86_64 version of grub2 to boot yet. However, I did try a x86 kernel vs. the x86_64 one i was using before, and it stalled at the same point that the x86_64 kernel.

It is, still a 2.6.27 kernel though, I still need to test with 2.6.26 and see what happens.

Is there a .config I can look at?
