rather than a cold boot (in other words, putting magic in the
shutdown byte of CMOS) so the hardware doesn't get properly
initialized. Would somebody please check this out. When changing
operating systems, you need a cold-boot.
Some BIOSes don't like when some devices are in some state. One example
is my DTK FortisPro TOP-5A notebook - when rebooted from Linux, it hangs
during POST - the fix was to add setpci <someting> to shutdown scripts
to zero-out some cardbus controller registers.
