Trying to install OpenVZ kernel on Centos 6.3, Yes my kernel is installed i can see it in the /boot folder, yes it is Rhel6 and yes it is all up to date, i checked this with yum update.

My issue comes when i reboot my server with that kernel set as the default, it doesn't load, below i shall put a copy of my grub.conf file and my menu.lst file.

Grub.conf:

default=0 timeout=5

title vzkernel (2.6.32-042stab057.1) root (hd0,0) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-042stab057.1 ro root=/dev/sda1 initrd /initramfs-2.6.32-042stab057.1.img

title linux centos6_64 kernel /boot/bzImage-3.2.13-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64 root=/dev/sda1 ro root (hd0,0)

Now i shall paste in Menu.lst;

# 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.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_stock-lv_root
# initrd /initrd-[generic-]version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Linux OpenVZ (vmlinuz-2.6.32-042stab057.1)
root (hd0,0)

initrd /initramfs-2.6.32-042stab057.1.img
title CentOS (2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64)
root (hd0,0)

initrd /initramfs-2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64.img
# dummy text

Somebody mentioned something about OVH having added a script which changes the kernel settings or something, and suggested that we either remove the script or reinstall using a VNC, but we don't know how to go about doing either of these?

Really would be great if you guys could help. Thanks in advance.

grub.conf and menu.lst should be exactly the same file, with one symlinked to the other (for backward compatibility). You seem to have two different files.

From a live CentOS system as seen after installation:

-rw-------. 1 root root   1618 Oct 15 17:19 grub.conf
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root     11 Sep 21 11:44 menu.lst -> ./grub.conf

That did not resolve anything, it just done the same thing, doesn't even show a response from the server. –  Conner Stephen McCabe Oct 30 '12 at 11:22
