Well, to be very honest, your report is very detailed but unfortunately, not very focussed. I don't really know what you have tried to do and what your Falcon is doing besides refusing to start Magic from your harddisk.
Also, the setup you're describing is pretty fragile to say the least.

Have you tried starting your Falcon in 030 mode without the CTPCI? Have you tried disconnecting your harddisk and running it with an empty disk inserted in your diskdrive? Have you tried disconnecting all drives and simply leaving it on to see whether the boot sequence of TOS times out and brings you to an empty desktop?

"Superboot" and "Magic" are programs being started from disk. If that's the only problem your Falcon has, i'd say files are corrupted. "Out of range" is not a TOS error being reported while initializing as far as i can tell. TOS usually either freezes or bombs out if it fails starting up.

Once you have tried that, feel free to report the results and maybe we manage to get a step further.
