I am facing some issues while trying to install Angstrom on a new 8 GB SD card for a Beagleboard-xM, rev C. My beagleboard does not boot.
I used the following link to download the images and followed the procedure given on the same page below:
I am using the Angstrom-Beagleboard-demo-image-glibc-ipk-2011.1-beagleboard.rootfs.tar.bz2 image.
I am getting the following output via the serial port.

But nothing happens after the booting the kernel. The output freezes.
There are number of doubts I am having:
Is this the right image for beagleboard xM (or is it meant only for beagleboard (old hardware) )?
Is it that the board boots but I am not able to see the output on the console through the serial port? I am using screen for talking to serial port
screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200
I see an error related to a uEnv.txt in the log. Is this error causing the symptom?
Am I missing a step somewhere? I used the guidelines on the same link above to create a new partitions and flash new image on the SD card.
