After googling around, the error message seems fine. However, after it booted, it outputs junk characters, e.g.,

The Angstrom Distribution overo ttyS2

Angstrom 2009.X-test-20090309 overo ttyS2

After booting, there are junk characters like what shows at the beginning.
Does it mean the flash memory has bad blocks?

Mine does the same on boot. When you first power it the two lights on the
front side by the power connector come on then go out. look at the mother
board on the other side, it should have a green light on, on it. If it does
not try re seating it and test again. It takes about 30 seconds to a minute
for it to bring up a display on the LCD. Also have you hooked up the consol
port to a computer to see it it is booting on there? If it doesn't maybe
someone else has more info on testing it.
