Your galil card is set to start with the servos in the motor off state. Good thing. Prevents nasty things from happening while the computer is loading.
Find the file startup.fil and add this line:
This will turn the sevos on.
I have no clue why your computer would have trouble loading the software. But I do think you should always force everything to stay off until your control is fully loaded and operational. I just covered this in a recent thread, don't enable your Estop circuit until the control is up and running.
