reboot hangs

Maybe somebody can suggest a fix:

I have an old tower machine - a homebrew that I use as a sandbox. Just loaded it up with a copy of squeeze, and a xen installation - works fine, but...
- shutdown -h works just fine
- reboot goes down, gives the console message "restarting system", then hangs

On an earlier installation (Lenny, x86 install) adding "reboot=bios" solved the problem. This time around - 64bit image (amd64), squeeze, none of the reboot=[....] parameters seem to make a difference. (I note that the Debian installer documentation indicates that reboot=bios only works with x86).

Any suggestions? Any configuration things I should try to uncover that might help find a solution (I don't have paperwork on the box, anymore - so it's going to be a matter of running various probes to figure out what's on the motherboard and such - suggested commands welcome.)
