GRUB stage2 boot failure from OES2SP2 to OES2SP3

For anyone else that finds themselves in this situation....

After patching SLES in preparation for OES2SP3, the system failed to boot after rebooting. GRUB was updated.

A new stage2 file appeared in /boot/grub which was not in working condition.

I replaced the stage2 file with a known good copy from another server to get back up and running again. I used a SLES DVD in Rescue Mode to mount the volume and perform the repair.

Whoops! Posted twice. On a slow link and the first post hung during submission.
