Won't boot in newer kernel

I am currently running 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 without any issues. I then rebooted my machine to find that there was a different kernel (2.6.18-1.2869.fc6xen), it proceeded to load and got to udev (where it says "ok" in green) and right at the point where it would go to GUI, everything stops responding. Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks, Nick

Can you still select the orignal kernel (press up/down cursor keys to select kernels at the grub loader screen)

if so then, boot into this and remove the xen kernel with yum remove kernel-xen.i686

(unless you use the virtualization package which needs xen, maybe you accidentally installed this)

Yes, I can and I am using the original currently. So I don't need xen, or should I say what is it for? Thanks, Nick

Note:
You may need to disable rhgb and switch to using runlevel 3. There are conflicting reports about X working

Seems likes its quite a bit above where I am currently, so for now I'll go without it. Thank you for the instructions on how to remove it. Nick
