This is probably the same as 150548. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=150548 Bug 104370 might be related as well, not sure.

Dan, thanks for pointing out 150548. The symptom does look the same. Amihai, please check to see if there is a BIOS update for your system. Also, you say: > but after the timeout there were only error messages Can you post those error messages? That would help to determine whether Bug 104370 is releated.

This BZ has been in NEEDINFO for almost three months. Since we have not received the feedback we requested, we will assume the problem was not reproducible or has been fixed in a later update of RHEL 4. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update release, and if this issue is still reproduceable, please contact the Red Hat Global Support Services page on our website for technical support options: https://www.redhat.com/support If you have a telephone based support contract, you may contact Red Hat at 1-888-GO-REDHAT for technical support for the problem you are experiencing.
