PC needs two boot sequences
my amd64 workstation has a very strange behavior at boot time.
It always hang during the first boot attempt. That happens at different
points, so I don't think it's a bug in a certain module. There are also
no log entries concerning the failure.
When I reboot, the second attempt is succesful without any errors.
To be even more strange, that happens only after the pc was off for
several hours. I tried to run it with apm or acpi disabled, but didn't
have any effects.
My hardware: Tyan Thunder K8W, 1*Opteron 246, 2GB Ram, 3Ware Raid
controller, nvidia fx 5200 graphics card.
Does anybody has an idea?
