Sounds like identical problem i was having with my old intel based
After the first reboot, following an install, it would get stuck on
the BIOS screen.
i had to do. turn off the system, remove the hd, connect it on
an another system and install
another os, erasing dragonfly. reconnect the hd back to the laptop
then the laptop would boot fine.
unfortunately, i never found the solution, the hd pins were
beginning to bend from removing
the hd alot trying to find a workaround.
