What you expected to happen:
   When the system boots, result from init scripts should be visible on the screen. That way, it is easy to know at boot time if some service failed to boot

What happened instead:
   Only a black screen is shown
   The caret is shown on screen bl'inking and moving vertically. Maybe the output from init scripts is there, but masked in back characters
   The first login prompt is at the middle/bottom of the screen
