Thank you for the pointer. I did try "burning" the image to various USB
sticks, and verifying the SHA sum.
Also, the same stick was booting fine on a ThinkPad.
I feel now that it could be some subtle mismatch between current
bootloader and firmaware in use on the workstations.
I have not stopped trying though.
I am just waiting for upcomig OpenIndiana April release, hoping it will
bring UEFI boot (one can always hope), and those issues will go away.
I am itching to become a more active contributor to OpenIndiana, perhaps
some contributions to docs and userland.
But until I have a properly working OI on workstations too I do not feel
Thank you again,
