You seem to have problem with your SCSI disk (google for P1/Z2)

Hi there,

The device in location P1/Z2 looks like it might be an external SCSI adapter to me (but I could be wrong - old info...). If you're booting from an internal disk, but have external disks attached as well, I would try and disconnect the external disks to see if that helps.

Regarding the boot menu, what happens when you try and boot the device, where you expect to see the menu? Do you have a physical (serial) terminal attached? If so, and you see nothing, when the system beeps twice, try pressing 5 on your ASCII terminal.

Hope this helps - good luck!
