[MinnowBoard] MBM board BIOS waiting ethernet and taken 50 seconds

Question:  Is the effort to perform a PXE boot?  Or booting to Linux from some other boot device (media)?

My earlier response was based upon the later (non-network boot).  Which was my understanding based upon the statement of disabling PCIE0 (the NIC) - hard to do a PXE boot without a NIC.

What distribution are you running, and what version of the firmware as well?  This is something I haven't seen in any of my testing, and 50 seconds or so waiting for a timeout seems awfully long to be waiting for a DHCP response and not getting one.  Any additional details you can give us would be helpful.
