Looks like the latter though I don't like lifls complaining about it.

The 712/80 can load/run Image from disk but immediately dumps me back
into "BOOT_ADMIN" prompt when trying via the lan. I don't even
get an error messages - darn computer is probably just to fast for
me to read it....I'll switch to a serial console. Anybody wants
the console output for the 712/80, let me know.
