During a normal reboot the server freezes and the LED panel shows BIOS code 8B - PCI IINIT. If I press the power button to completely shutdown the server and initiate a another startup it boots up normally with no errors. I have never seen something of this nature. Anyone experience this type of reboot problem before?
