Hey Simon,
Thanks for the suggestion,
I've just tried a very quick check changing the match statement to " match
if vendor-class-identifier = "Mips_boot";"
however from a very quick glance the result looked the same as the device
didn't boot and I saw no log lines "Devboot" on the console.
I will do a more detailed check this evening. I still welcome input from
other users please
