Dear Edgar,

Either enable ScrollLock or hold down the shift key to interrupt the Oberon Boot Loader. MaxProcs=1 most likely won't help (the bug that made this configuration string necessary was fixed quite some time ago).

For some detailed startup troubleshooting guide, see

Hi all,

install A2 on my new notebook.

Bad luck :-( "Oberon loading", black screen!
Does anybody remember the key to stop booting to configure boot parameters?
My best guess will be to set proc=1.
