Your kernel ID in the line shown above should be 2115, not 22115.  That
is probably just a typo in your post, not a copy from the grub.conf.

You can also check that you have GRAPHICAL=yes.

  From /etc/sysconfig/init:
 # anything else => new style bootup without ANSI colors or positioning
 # Turn on graphical boot
