I have (had?) the same problem. I've two nearly identical Machines, both
have the same problem. - But yesterday I decided to toggle a little
with the BIOS setup. - Eh' voila, one of them now boots through !!!
(The other one isn't yet tested!)

They both have a SOYO 486 Mainboard, both running with the 133 MHz AMD-CPU.

It seems to be a problem with RAMs. - I had a very fast timing entered
originally, and now I made it more relaxed. - That's all.
I hope I've not too high performance loss for now... :-(

... and I use Loadlin. :-)
