I had this too yesterday. I fixed it by flashing the latest firmware. 
After perhaps 2 or 3 more reboots with firmware update messages, it 
booted normally.

I vaguely understand that there might be a bug with an early firmware 
which stops the auto update from taking place during first boot, unless 
you've manually updated past this one, you won't get new firmwares just 
by flashing new operating systems.
