My first thought was perhaps the bootstrap was using a PROM routine
which wasn't working correctly in the older PROM.
My Maxine with a 2.0g PROM (which I presume would be older than
your 2.0m) boots OK. [I suppose it could be possible that something
in 2.0m might have been broken between 2.0g and 2.0m and later fixed.]
