Re: Server boot failed

The swap is usually enabled very early in the start-up process, certainly before network.
If you can log in remotely, the server may have booted correctly even though the display may have frozen.

Check the /var/log directory: if there is a file named "boot" or "boot.log", read it.

What kind of Linux distribution do you have? RedHat, SuSE, Fedora, Debian or something else?

Re: Server boot failed

You'll probably need to boot in single-user mode and fsck the appropriate disk(s).

Re: Server boot failed

If it's a Red Hat or derivate version, that messages is the last message you see in text mode when you boot using graphical boot. And as you have network, maybe something is happening at the graphical boot and you can't see it.

Try pressing CTRL+ALT+F7 (Or f8 f9 f10 f11 f12), I don't remember exactly, or disable the graphical boot.

Edit your /boot/grub.conf file and remove the kernel parameter "rhgb".
