HP ProDesk 600 G3 MT unable to reboot -f

I am able to PXE the device and laydown images but I cannot reboot the device. It begins to reboot and simply hangs with, "Rebooting...". I tried "reboot" and "reboot -f" from bash with same result. They also do not successfully respond to "shutdown" from bash, either.

I can hold the power button in and restart and the build continues as expected, but this kills the "hands-off" imaging.

ZCM is with the July 17 FRU.

Any ideas or is this a code bug I'm going to have to wait for a fix?

like I said, a SR is the way to go, looks like no-one else here has
seen this, so unless you report it to MFA, there's a good chance it
won't get fixed
