First, it booted finally. Thanks a lot.
But, one problem. it takes long time to boot.
it is very fast once booting is start, even with debugging enabled.
But, before it, there is long wait.
I mean, wait until a message below comes.

(push reset button)
(wait, wait, wait,,,,   WAIT..... zzzz....   Maybe more than 10 sec!)

 Enabling mainboard devices
 Enabling shadow ram
(after this, very fast.)

Any help?
I used this patch also. Maybe this is a cause? But, without this, it does 
not work.
