Thank you for your tip. It works now!
Booting a new loader with "make LOADER_GZIP_SUPPORT=no" solved the
problem. I can definitely boot from the onboard SCSI disc.
What we need to make this work also with installation ISO?
At the time when the "Fast Data Access MMU Miss" error occured I have made
a ctrace and a ftrace. If this can be useful to somebody I can post the
