I have a server that I rent from OVH that has CentOS 6.4 64bit and I decided to reboot it one day and BAM it failed to boot and I have no idea what is wrong with it. OVH said "Here are the details of this operation: Diagnosis interface boot (rescue) Date 2013-10-02 00:32:43, hugo.daoust made Diagnosis interface boot (rescue): Here are the details of the operation performed: The server gets stuck during the boot phase, with the message:

"Starting HAL daemon"

I have no idea what this means does anyone know how to get the server back up with out wiping it/reinstalling?
