Fresh boot cdrom and tried floppies, (Version-4.0) both fail booting on alpha ES45, both work on LX164.
Any one have any better luck perhaps with 2.0 or 1.6?

How did this fail? I am just now trying to boot netbsd on our ES45 that was just removed from production, and it's failing when the boot loader is loading the kernel. I think I saw the same failure on an ES47 a few weeks ago before we sold them. I've tried 4.0 from a copy of a disk that boots fine on my CS20, and I've tried a -current CDROM. I haven't figured out how to proceed from here, but I'll probably try adding some debugging output to the boot loader.
