I've noticed some problems wit bootloader: when it comes to a boot menu 
and the countdown is started, on some machines a counter does not count 
from 10 to 0, but cycles in 9-8-9-8 and so on, and after 10 seconds 
prints some garbage on screen and hangs.
do you have serial equipment connected to those machines?  modem, mouse, 

dragonfly by default spawns a serial bootloader console, so this could 
be the cause.
