That is the only way I am accessing the box, with a terminal session on a
laptop with a USB Cisco-styled cable jacked in to Ser Mgmt port.

I power on the system with:

start /SYS

And within 10 seconds it powers down.

Sometimes when I power it up I attempt:

start /SYS

and then:

start /SP/console

But see nothing other that the spinning bar for about two rotations, then it

I am assuming that when the fans bdieb the system is off, not just taking
a long time to do something, correct?

Sort of at a stopping point, I guess itbs time to contact the seller,
hopefully he knows enough to help me get past this...
