rp3410 boot hang on with Dec 2004 Foundation CD or DVD

Has anyone seen an issue with the rp3410 failing to boot from the December 2004 CD or DVD media. Both hang. Viewing the console via the console RS-232 port with WRQ Reflections we see the system start to boot from the device. It displays up to the point were it lists physical memory, then just stops like it would as if asking for the language setting, but that isn't on the screen. The only unusual circumstance is that the unit has the A6150B graphics card installed. Thanks for your help.

IIRC, from installing on a rp3440, I remember reading a warning that came in the system box saying that using an A6150B for the console is not supported. I don't know if this means not tested or not working. just my 2 cents.

Robert-Jan had it perfectly. Thanks you. My quick search didn't find this. I removed the graphics card and everything installed fine, but I couldn't get the graphics card running, after I put it back in. When I added the graphics drivers to the kernel cause a panic and dump. Hopefully the patch will get it to work. It seems function with June 2004 release.

Also, I knew that the A6150B will not work for a boot console. It only becomes alive once X11/CDE starts after boot.
