VF65GS10 Tower Kit Hangs on Boot Occasionally

Hello,

 

I have recently downloaded the latest factory along with the 3.13A linux-mx kernel for the VF65GS10 and have experienced what seems to be a hang at boot. The board does boot properly at times and then other times I need to power cycle anywhere from 1 to 10 times before boot proceeds nominally.

 

I was curious if anyone has experienced this? We were running the 3.0 kernel previously and we did not experience the hang. I suspect it is not a console issue since the linux logo does not display on the screen. I do see the logo during a successful boot. Thanks for your help.

 

Additional Info:

 

I just built the RFS and Kernel using the 3.0 kernel and I have not experienced any boot issues.
