I found I could work around it by inserting a CD if one was not
present (or ejecting one if present). I guess it has something to do
with udev being able to move the computer to a new state that allows
it to boot.

No logs to provide at the moment, though. There's no dmesg, and trying
to read /dev/klog crashes:

    $ dmesg
    -bash: dmesg: command not found
    $ cat /dev/klog
    cat: /dev/klog: Computer bought the farm

Does anyone know how to view system logs on this OS?
