Naw, I don't recall the POST error exactly, but from what I remember it couldn't find a boot device. Could've been the controller, but from what I recall I swapped the drive (later) and all was good. I really don't recall though - I could've put the "bad" drive in a good laptop and fixed it that way - really don't recall details. Wish I could fix some other problems by throwing them in a freezer!
