Not much to go on.
Since you say "Workstation" one might presume that you are running in
GUI mode. Have you tried booting to runlevel 1 or 3? Turning off
"quiet" mode? Might see some useful hints.
In GRUB type "a" to append/edit the kernel boot line. Delete "rhgb
quiet" and replace it with "1" or "single" for single-user mode, or "3"
for full network boot without GUI. See if anything enlightening shows up.
