OK, I'll bite - how can the kernel go into a reboot loop that doesn't get to the grub menu? (Hint: How does your system get from the BIOS splash screen to starting the kernel? :) (Though I've seen kernels that flash the screen like they're rebooting but they're actually hung in a loop, and I've heard some great bar stories about kexec/kdump gone horribly astray and re-invoking the current kernel rather than the kexec target kernel....)
