It will run through the rescue mode and load everything then it gets
back to the menu where I have options to run program again. I get past
the splash screens and get a blank screen.   I would have to run it
again, to find what are the last few messages. But as far as  can
remember, the last few messages say (ok) on the far right of the
screen and it goes back to the menu.
