    Press Down arrow twice
    You should be on load optimized Defaults

    had a Gbox, and even had the same vid card, what solved the problem for me was fairly simple to fix. Hopefully you have the same problem. Underneath the fan, directly below it you will see a tiny little red box with two switches. Above it is written DV on, and below it is DV off. Apparetently AMS had some problems with the DV, aka firewire that comes on the 8500DV. If you manually override it by switching the little white nobs to off it should be able to work around that problem and boot up. At least it did for me, let me know how it works out for you and sorry to add a message on 2 months after the fact.
