Sorry, for just attaching the unedited log file with the coreboot boot
messages. But at time stamp 31 second (first column) the Linux messages
are also included. An excerpt, and the full log in my last message.

The problem on the Lenovo X60 is, that the serial console seems to
switch from ttyS0 to ttyS1 during bootup with the dock attached, that’s
why you do not see the messages in the beginning.


Kind regards,
