Hi,
This error is usually occures if there is a problem with boot disk or system hardware causing system bootup failure.

ENTRY_INIT STATUS = -4 described as
Unrecoverable Hardware Error.
An unrecoverable hardware error has occurred between the processor PDC and IODC on the target controller or device

ENTRY_INIT -4 Causes: - the disk is experiencing hardware faults and needs replacing. - the path to the disk is experiencing problems. e.g.. Termination, cabling, SCSI adapter, SCSI adapter seating

Refer the following document to troubleshoot and resolve the problem.

Re: A500

Has the system been working? Did anything change? Is there a newer firmware version that is needed for something you have added or changed?

Is it 11i v1 or v2 (11.11 or 11.23PI)?

I would expect your A500 to have a 64-bit processor, so with proper firmware it should be able to run either version of 11i.
