OpenBSD can fail to boot if my PCMCIA ethernet card has already been initialised. Specifically, this happens to me when I've booted back out of Windows which cunningly appears not to shut the card down properly. One gets dumped into debug mode before the boot has completed.
A hard rather than soft reboot forces the ethernet card to be shut down and all seems to be fine.
