Where's the error? These look to me like
pretty normal progress messages.

You appear to have two Ethernet interfaces
which are bad, or connected to something bad,
or not connected to anything. It's hard to
tell which from where I'm sitting.

Re: Error is getting when I try to boot the ALPHA 4100 server

We need more information.

What is the entire restart message? Can you post in an attachment? Also include >>> show config, >>> show power & >>> show fru results.

Can you boot in single user mode?

Maybe try the genvmunix kernel?

Have you looked at the POST Error Log to make sure no errors are present prior to booting (>>> cat el)?

Try to boot an O/S cd to see if the system can at least boot something.

Have you recently changed, installed, upgraded the hardware or software?
