Netboot Restarts on Desktop Load

Has anyone seen an issue where you netboot a computer, it gets to the desktop and then after a few seconds it just restarts? I can't get it to stay connected to netboot long enough to do anything. It is on an iMac(iMac Intel Early 2008) model that I have had no trouble with before. Re-imaged 3 other similar iMacs in the same room with no problem.

The netboot is 10.9.3.

@krusej23 So it's one Mac? Maybe it's an issue with the Macs RAM?

I will see if that's the issue by swapping out the ram.

@krusej23 I am having the same problem with all of my 2008 iMacs, 10 of them. Did you find a solution, or reason for this behaviour?

I have yet to find an issue. I am still going to try swapping out the RAM on it but if you are having issues with multiple iMacs of the same model then I'm guessing it's a model issue.

I am able to image these computers by putting the .nbi on a USB key and booting from there.
