Cannot get into Interactive Mode on RHEL-Itanium


HW: Itanium
SW: RH Enterprise

I don't seem to be able to go into 'interactive Mode' (by pressing the I-button) when the system starts it's daemons. I DO see the prompt, but don't seem to get enough time to enter the I, after which the system simply carries on...

Try again, the timing is a little hard to get. Nothing wrong with pressing the 'i' key a number of times (5-6) quickly. Usually if you press the 'i' key a number of times during the first two or three daemon loads (the first green [OK] lines) you will get into the interactive mode.
