Already tried to --force... Not better results. My first idea is that
we re well far from having a running system (it's not only a
boot-floppies problems) on alpha port.

Now the machine is in this status. Who interested can contact me to
start a debugging session.
Maybe it's better if I opened a 'general' bug?
