Yes, sorry: my first goal was to advise that I reach to boot the N and will
go later examine this pb.

IIRC to start up this box I first unplug the NIC cable to avoid network
After that I changed the config file to restart the built-in NIC which didn't
come up? A strange thing that I noticed was that there was not hard led

It should be because the switch disable temporarely the port after the cut
of the link? I will check further...
