This might be silly, but I'll ask anyways... Does it actually *boot*, or
might it be stopping at POST, with the BIOS whining about no kbd? If not,
where does it stop?
Rip out kvm, boot, plug in kvm, and see if you can find any useful info.
AFAIK there is no difference on the boot process with or without KVM, seen
from linux's perspective. Only thing is that you'll probably get two
messages in the syslog about noisy cable :)
Ripping stuff out of a running PC is a True Sign of Manhood.
My 2c anyways.
