I have a similar issue - I did a clean install of 10.04 from a live USB and while to initial boot from the USB showed the normal Ubuntu splash screen with the progress dots under the symbol the next boot and subsequent boots from the hard have a black screen until the gnome desktop comes up. I assume an issue with grub2?

I don't think it's a Grub2 issue. *buntu now uses "Plymouth" for the initial boot screen, following the boot menu. I don't know lots about Plymouth -- it's a little touchy on my Kubuntu system. If you delete the "quiet" option on the kernel boot line in the boot menu, then you should be able to view the messages as it boots.

Whats your chipset? Try turning off integrated graphics in the bios if you've got 2 cards.
