The DAQ PC is a dual boot machine. One is the "Mini-System" and the other
is for normal operations. If for any reason the DAQ PC crashes (power failure,
loss of SGIS Global Permissive...) the DAQ PC will boot with
the Mini-System. Rebooting "minimally" improves the chances that we can
get back in touch with this PC over the network.
If any kind of DAQ PC crash occurs, this is the procedure
to log in and reboot the DAQ PC to prepare for normal running.
