Do you mean *re*booting?

I've seen some of that.

Are you using gcc 3.x or 4.x to compile, and on 32 or 64 bit? 

I've found there are issues with gcc 4.3 (even when built with the nice
coresystems build-your-own-toolchain script). The most reliable compiler for
coreboot in my experience is still gcc 3.4.

Also, are you sure your CONFIG_HT_* settings are correct? I found that
CONFIG_HT_CHAIN_UNITID_BASE really has to be 1 to get a bootable system with
mcp55 on fam10.
