The system did not POST correctly.   Connect a terminal to look for
enlightening error messages.  If that doesn't work, look for a row of
LEDs on the rear of the machine (on each system board).  During POST,
one of the system boards should have a lit row of LEDs, and the LEDs on
the other cards should be off.  After POST, a single green LED for each
CPU will light, and the yellow LEDs will seek back and forth to
illustrate idle CPU cycles.
