RHEL 5 booting stuck – GRUB Loading stage2… Press any key to continue

I have a HPE Proliant DL380 G7 that is running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 that was stuck on the following message

GRUB Loading stage2…
Press any key to continue

Removed the section shown in red on file /boot/grub/grub.conf

root@rhel5:/boot/grub # cat grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
