5.2 Bootloader Hanging on HP N40L

Recommended Posts

Currently running 5.1-5055 on an HP N40L with the xpenology boot loader imaged onto a flash drive. Have downloaded the 5.2-5565.1 and 5.2-5565.2 bootloaders multiple times and flashed multiple times. Both, after selecting Install/Upgrade, load the kernel, state .... OK and then I just get a blank screen. I see no disk activity and nothing responds through network. I've seen quite a few posts about 5.2 and the network issue, yet I cannot even get to that point. Any thoughts on this? Thanks!

Hacked BIOS for me. I have tried to just boot into the default kernel and I get the same hang. I image the flash drive back to xpenoboot 5.1 and it loads immediately into the kernel with the xpenoboot logo.

 

Maybe the xpenoboot guys have a way of logging the boot process?

Have you tried another USB stick?

Have you tried disconnecting keyboard and/or mouse - if connected?

Do you have any other add-ons in your N40L? Networkcard, graphic card, SATA controllers and so on?

Do you have any other devices connected to any USB port?
