How long is longer? overnight?

When I re-flash and first boot I always have AC plugged in case of a FW update or battery failure

I believe is a production machine (C2?)

On my first boot I start with the check mark pressed so I can see what's going on. So it was at the boot console.
I can not recall the exact message. Was something about mass storage devices but not quite remember. 4.x sec into the boot process. 
Did not look like the "zero dot freeze" because the camera light was not on.

No I didn't.
Actually I was surprise that was no FW update. 
My XO-1.5 had q3a39, but the latest is q3a41. Is os205 using q3a39? (ok, I can find that :) 

Should I be sending it back for diagnosis if everything else fails or just consider it random failure?
