I once had a soundcard that would only work if I booted windows first,
then soft reset into Linux (yes I did figure this out eventually, well
actually someone else did and was kind enough to put the answers where
google could find it).

Anyway, I suspect the problem is not with Grub, but hardware related.
Try turning off "Plug'n Play OS" in the BIOS

Are you *sure* this is a stock kernel?  Make sure there are no
performance patches of any kind (archck/beyond, ck, realtime-lsm, etc.)
 What kind of system is this?  Also, some performance enhancements from
the mm branch have been merged, you may wish to disable these (the low
latency preemption stuff comes to mind).  What about using a stock
kernel from your distro?  Does the same problem manifest itself?
