When I open the tray and type 'boot dka0' I get ...
dka0.0.0.4.0 has no media present or is disabled via the RUN/STOP switch
If I close the tray and type 'boot dka0' I get ...
failed to open dka0.0.0.4.0
If I open the tray, type the command, then close the tray I get the 'not
present' error displayed and once it's closed it prints the 'failed to open'
