Year that does the job. If the workstation starts it takes some extra
time to load Grub. First i see two error's, but they are quick away.
Next the menu is loaded. I can't use the arrow keys for selecting a I
want kernel. But just pressing enter does work. And being able edit a
kernel line does it as well. But again no arrow keys to walk through
the text. Exit with F10 also not functioned but ctrl+x does it well.

Next the kernel boots well. What's would be the best way to debug and
save the error messages?
