If queried, regardless of what is asked, it replies that it is still booting up. Nothing happens after waiting and sever reboots resulted in the same behavior.

Rebooted several times, same hang at yellow eyes.
It appears I am hanging on the loading of skills.
I tried a reset and have not been able to get past the yellow eyes.
