 The system is still starting up, and the                                       
 regular CLI is not yet available. Please exit this shell and try again.       
 If this problem persists then this shell                                       
 provides a limited subset of commands                                         
 to allow you to restore the system to                                         
 a working state. Please use "help" or "?"                                     
 to see a list of available commands.

iv changed the dom and bios over from a working unit and still the same fault
also occasionally it boots to a KDB prompt
iv searched hi and low for any info on this and no luck.
oh and iv tryed booting from primary and secondary but still have the same issue grrrrr.
i dont want to have to send these off for repair simply because i do know some one who has done so and the same fault has reoccured on most of his ones that got sent away. he is also stumped on this.
ill confess im not much of a computer wiz but i learn fast so please excuse me if anything is obviouse.
many thanks
