Yes, that about the same.

Thanks for your suggestion Joonas :)
I did try that. The machine booted up to the point where the login
screen would have come up and then froze solid.

That being said, I tried for day to install the new beta on this
machine with no success. When I was finally able get 11 beta
installed and rebooted, I got the exact same behaviour from that
kernel as I am experiencing now. So obviously, something isn't right
someplace.

I'll poke around the next couple of days and try to determine what
the problem is.

Thanks a lot for your idea though, I appreciate it.

Kind Regards,
Dan
