Looking at the serial console output after changing the boot_option
value to "Normal" and the debug_level value to "Spew" in the CMOS,
I've found that the system hangs near the very begining of load
process after trying to find some memory (dram0).

So with lxbios I changed the max_mem_clock value from "200Mhz" to
"400Mhz"--since I have DDR400 dimms inserted to the system--and got
the system loaded.

Other changes were cosmetic, like giving meaninful values to
boot_first ("HDD"), boot_second and boot_third ("Fallback_HDD").

Best regards,
