Don't know if the two are related but my MD hangs when I enabled blue-tooth from the admin website of that device. It now boots up as normal and the UI (1) flashes on the screen before the screen goes blank with a non-movable mouse prompt.
There may be another problem but I thought in case it is related and anyone's had similar I'd post here.
In the bluetooth setup wiki it refers to bluetooth dongles but presumably the onboard bluetooth of a notebook can be used? Or not
