[Libreboot] New topic: Libreboot on MiniFree X60 - will not boot, CapsLo

Turned on the laptop (X60 with Libreboot, Lubuntu in place of Trisql) this 
morning and it's an unwell laptop. It will go through the usual palaver to load 
the Ubuntu system after reading the HDD configuration (never been bothered to 
try to figure out what Trisql does that Lubuntu or most other systems do), and 
it starts to do the reading of the kernel and or init ramfile from memory ... 
then blocks.
Only remaining signal is the Capslock LED flashing.
(1) Libreboot or Lubuntu ... actually, I can address this tomorrow if I can 
find the dinky HDD with Trisql on it. Tomorrow.
(2) My guess is this is indicating a keyboard fault. Removed and replaced 
keyboard, but no result. Also removed, shuffled and replaced SODIMMs with no 
success (the X60 doesn't seem to want to boot with a 2GB SODIMM in slot 0, but 
otherwise the fault persists.

Any suggestions?

 It is mainly due to lack of documentation on the northbridge
 memory controller.
