[rescue] seemingly dead ultra 10

There's a magic key combination that will cause a NVRAM reset on power-up.
Your NVRAM may have gotten corrupt OR was set for some odd config when last
used, a config that may not be valid anymore.

I want to say stop/L1 on power-up until system restarts, then let go.

After NVRAM is reset, the system reboots.

Double-check the key combination, my memory is hazy, it's been a few years.
