No, I can't even see the console.
Here's what it does.
The monitor led is orange (standby mode).
It powers up.
The monitor led turns green (operational mode).
The monitor led blinks green (??? mode).
The system just sits there.
It may be at the srm prompt waiting for input, (it is not set up to boot
directly, I haven't saved the boot environment variable in the console).
