What's the point of posting the uname information then? The information
was misleading in this context.

In the meantime, did you boot the machine with a serial or netboot console
to find out what's actually happening? We won't be able to help in anyway
without a debug log.


Sounds too much like work for an annoying little thing.
I will connect a KVM to it perhaps and that may solve it without
knowing why it happens.  As for a serial port or serial console,
in my dreams. There is no way that I know to attach a serial
port to these old things.
