Tektronix 3001GPX power up & boot


I just acquired a Tek 3001GPX with all the goodies (keyboard, three P6490 acquisition probes, and 2 extra probe lead assemblies for the P6490s). It powers on, passes all it's self tests, says that it is loading and running software from the hard disk, but it never shows the main menu: it just stays on the boot screen. I haven't given a huge amount of time to boot, but I've given it a few minutes.

How long should a 3001GPX take to boot from the internal hard drive? Am I just too impatient?
