I have a PowerEdge 1950 that was acting weird. Network connectivity was
only performing at a quarter of what was expected (if that). Even if I
scp'd something to localhost it would perform poorly. Rather than fight
with it, I just decided to reload it. It was running 5.3, and it is now
running 5.4. However, when I go to boot it gets stuck at starting udev.
If I let it sit long enough it will then give me errors with something
along the lines of:
Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason 00
Do you have a strange power saving mode enabled?
Wondering if anyone has an idea..
