 The machine is booting from GRUB, not from a floppy or CD, so
how do I pass this option at bootup ... (from a cold boot)? As it is,
I now have to hit the reset button, and (usually this happens for a
couple of boots) then I get the progress bar working as it should.
i.e. no freeze, no flashing keyboard LED's
