Powered relatively new 6600 (new in January) up and I get the flashing red light

So I have a boot failure based on the flashing red light. I tried a cold start and reboot per Tim's documentation. I get the radio into into the reset mode - solid white. After about 90 seconds the flashing red light appears again and stays that way untilI power down the radio. I did open up a help desk ticket.

    What is the pattern of red flashing? The support staff is the best method but let us know the pattern.

    3 red flashes, pause, 3 red flashes, pause, etc. According to the Flex manual that indicates a boot failure.

    Time to open a Help Desk ticket. Boot failure is usually, but not always, a failure of the SD card.

    The radio is already on it's way back to the mother ship.
