the 'd6 bricking' has 2 common symptoms: the laptop boots with a dark screen
and the mic light flashes and never goes further or the laptop boots with a
message about an invalid date and goes no further. That is for non-lease-bound
XOs. The lease complicates this as because when you have to re-image the
laptop, you need to get a lease file onto the laptop to activate the laptop.
