>From Tim Deegan here:

It looks like GRUB is being loaded by the BIOS but then can't access the
CD-ROM drive after it's booted.  Since the 2.0.6 demo CD is giving the
same error it can't be caused by our modifications to GRUB.

Presumably the BIOS isn't telling GRUB about its CD drive in a way GRUB
can understand.  Trying to use a USB CDROM can cause very similar
symptoms: http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=11723

Looks like the GRUB devel list agrees:

I can't comment on the list post as gnu.org / fsf.org are down at present,
router issue.
