Anyone have this problem or know what's going on?
Going from the welcome screen to a grey screen (without ever seeing a trace of the just a few more minutes screen) usually means a problem with communication between the motherboard and the hard drive.
This can be caused by several different things, and in your case I couldn't say if its' the internal or the external drive with which the motherboard can't communicate, assuming that the most likely explanation for your grey screen is the accurate one in your situation.
