Can you give more debug info? The kernel prints out copious messages to the screen when it's loading. If they go by too quickly to catch, you can press Scroll-Lock, and then either use the arrow keys or the PageUp/PageDown keys to navigate.
It'll be quite a lot of typing, unless you're booting from a serial console and can copy-paste.
