G'day David.
The holdup is either after the BIOS has loaded or is during the BIOS load up period. It is difficult to tell as it simply shows a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the top left hand corner.
Ironically, when starting the machine today it started with minimal hesitation. Yesterday I had to do a number of re-starts to get the OS to load.

At what point is it requiring multiple restarts?

Is it during the bios bootup (or soon afterwards) or while the OS is loading?
