    Try entering "Help" at the prompt.
    Life is an extraordinarily long concatenation of luck and coincidence.

    This worked for me. I got this wierd error and didn't know what to do. I typed "help" for no other reason than That's What I Do At Wierd Prompts, and a help menu came up.

    Once I tried selecting one of the options from the help menu (pressing one of the F2 to F12 keys), it showed some help, and then it started the boot sequence with no further input.
