Debug works on EA Baseboard, but not on final PCB

I have programmed a piece of firmware on the Embedded Artists LPC1788 Baseboard (with the OEM board in the SODIMM socket) which works fine. Now we have recently produced our prototype PCB which also uses a fresh OEM board of the same type.

Now, if I use the fresh OEM board in my Baseboard everything works fine and as expected. However, when I insert it into my prototype PCB some funny stuff happens. First of all, programming with the LPCXpresso programmer seems to work just fine (the log file is at the end of this post), as it says that the programming was successful. What already worries me at that part is the line with "assumed clock: 12.0MHz", because on the EA Baseboard it says "assumed clock: 120.0MHz".
Also when I try to debug it through LPCXpresso it successfully starts, but it doesn't execute my code but rather starts off in some part at address 0x1fff.... which, according to the linker file, is somewhere at the end of the RAM section.
Needless to say that it doesn't do a thing, regardless of whether I am debugging it or just letting it run normally.

Any ideas?

Best regards!
