Hi
Start with setting the amigaboot_quiet=Y variable to N just as roland sugested and post your results here.

We'll get it going again :)

You can even put a kickstart directory on a normal fat32 formated usb stick and load the kickstart from there and then load the rest of the os from your hdd.
That can be a good solution if there's something wrong with your kicklayout on the hdd.

So once again, by pure magic, it works again. I did nothing other than had it off for a couple of days. I just got my Radeon 5450 in and tried it, booted right up. Put my Polaris 11 card in again, booted right up. I just don't understand this machine sometimes?!

I am not joking, I did nothing other than power it off a couple of days, swap cards (keeping in mind I had been swapping cards before the 5450 came in), and Poof, it works.

Would be interesting to know if it refuses to work/boot again after you left it there for a few hours.

Then it would be a soldering issue (not sure if it's called a cold or a hot solder issue, though)
