Is there a way I can copy/paste these messages? I used a good old fashioned
pen and paper to write down the last six lines. I really would like to avoid
using this method for the whole boot sequence, which is about 50 lines.
Again, I have to press [Stop]-A and do reset-all, or use the hard power switch
on the back of the CPU. Can I still get "dmesg"-like output from failed boot
attempts after "flipping the switch"? If so, how?
If not, are there any key lines in the boot sequence that I should zero in on?
I suppose if I really start to pull my hair out I could conceivably use pen
and paper on 50 lines, but that would take me about an hour...
