   I had a 486 that would do that after selecting the entry. Most the time if you build with CFLAGS set it'll affect grub. Did you set any optimizations while building grub? Since you say MEPIS 3.3.1 entry is working fine, are they both using the same type of filesystem? Give a bit more information if you can on how the system is setup and how you configured the system to use grub.
