If I understand the above correctly, I should power on and then type eb
.... and it should display a prompt. Then when I insert a cable it should
jump into a new line printing something else and wait for me to input
stuff again ? Well for me it only prints the following :

20c0034: b0 ?

And then nothing happens. I have tried starting with and without cable,
and I also tried typing 00 and 90, but to no avail. Am I doing something
wrong here ?

It says I have Monitor 2.5 (v66).
