My guess would be that the video monitor may not respond to serial port input, that is, either serial port or kbd / monitor modes, not both. It may default to serial port if no keyboard detected... Chris

OK. Not sure why the startup is so slow, but things seem to be working fine again. (Perhaps the fact that I'm not using the fastest hardware I have is a factor!) Interestingly, according to OPERATOR.LOG there was a full shadow copy (no
