We have examined the SU(5) GUT phase transition in (nearly) Coleman-Weinberg type models coupled to gravity and have found three different modes through which the transition may proceed, depending upon the choice of (zero temperature) parameters. For each of these modes, we have determined numerically whether there is sufficient inflation to explain some long standing cosmological puzzles, and we find that this is the case only in a very restricted region of parameter space.
