What I notice first, is that the device does not boot anymore. Since I am
using an old IBM pc (Celeron 333MHz, 128Mb, 256Mb Sandisk Flash)I have to
hook it up a monitor to see what is the prob. What I see then is that it is
trying to load several files, which are obviously missing (bad). It stopt
with a "> " waiting for a command input. I see the same problem when I want
install a machine with FreeBSD using a bad CD.
It is not a problem which can be reproduced in my case, but just sometimes
happen from time to time with the firmware upgrade, version independent.
