Sadly, I agree. Reset BIOS CMOS data (hardware jumper on motherboard) Enter RAID controller BIOS, (re)set your "boot drive" But it looks like a fundamental BIOS control issue is malfunctioning. Do you have a PCI Diagnostics card? One like the following? http://www.uxd.com/phdpci.shtml (I'm not saying that exact model, but rather a device that is able to see BIOS codes through the PCI bus that can tell very technical detail to tech support at the motherboard's vendor (you said Intel, right?).) Hardware rarely up and dies. Have you tried swapping RAM chips out, or re-ordering them to see if it might be a RAM problem? Maybe we're not passing POST, or that we're passing POST but the bootable device list is not finding bootable medium. These kind of issues intrigue me, because it is out of the norm, and why did it happen. I'd get to the point of swapping hardware one at a time until it fixes, or until you exhaust your options. Have any kind of support contract with the OEM? --Tim _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
