Just tried the iso, no luck for me. Here is the last little bit of the startup:

Hi Matt,

Thanks for testing. The fix I've mentioned addresses the problem with silo
crashing much earlier in the boot process, so you are hitting something else here. I would recommend to try and netboot the machine, this usually allows to work around silo quirks, since then it's not involved in booting the kernel at all.

Best regards,
