Try configuring it as a PC164 instead of an LX164.
I vaguely remember this problem. I don't remember what I did to
solve it tough, but I can think of three tings I changed from the
time I had it to the time it went away:
1. Upgraded to a never kernel
2. Upgraded to a never version of MILO
3. Changed from AlphaBIOS to SRM
You might want to try one or all of these options.
I don't know what the consequences are of choosing
PC164 instead of LX164, but at least mine booted ;)
