I have done some debugging, and it seems in some cases that the
DEQNA/DELQA is only able to transmit a packet, and can not reveive

What KA650 version have you got?
My boot failure was on a KA650-B V5.3, VMB 2.7. (The ROM was more
advanced, with help and a lot of commands.)

Do boot tapes on KA650 work? Last time, I tried the 1.3 tapes, but with
no success. (I had a 1.2C installation, I think. I ended up catting the
miniroot to the swap-partition and booting from there.)
