No? IIRC the ss4 has just the same connector as the ss5 does, maybe the location
is different. Isn't it bossible to use the cabling from the ss5 (cable to SCA
backplane, power cable) and the ss5's power supply in the ss4?

Halts or does not display? On several occasions I had the following:
booting was alright, then stopped displaying messages, but pressing return
after a while came up with a login prompt. If I set the terminal to 7-bit, it
would not display at first, then displaye something and have problems again
when the login pormpt came up.
