I think this is totally different kind of problem. Jacques' problem "only" caused instant hang (system hang due to bad reset signal, this can be fixed with ugly software workaround) but in your case CPU keeps running and rom checksum code seems to detect crc error.
Do you still get red screen if you do following: power off at least 10 seconds, remove all CF cards, power on, F1, enter early boot menu, click reboot button? Or you do only get it if you boot from CF card first? (=some weird patch in startup-sequence?)
Do you have physical 1.3 or 3.1 ROM chip?
