I'm booting linuxbios with a adlo/bochs payload on a VIA EPIA 800. I have
also disabled vga in bochs so thatit does not hang when vgabios is not
present. Bochs will load about 10% of the time when rebooting the system.
The rest of the time it will hang.
I am quite certain that it is somewhere in bochs where the problem exists
since I can load etherboot from linuxbios without issue. The times bochs
does load from linux generally hangs shortly after lilo loads the kernel.
What I am wondering is if anyone else has had this problem and come up
with a workaround, or knows the reason, or atleast where I should look
