    Re: BAD_CTX 8MB Intel 320 SSD issue

    Who am I kidding? Of course I chose the hdderase option. The consensus of people posting on the internets is that it works. Worked in my case as well. At least to a first approximation. The drive...

    BAD_CTX 8MB Intel 320 SSD issue

    If rumors are to be believed, there may be a firmware issue that, during a power cycle, can cause an Intel 320 SSD to convert to an inoperable 8MB BAD_CTX state. See:

    Re: Ubuntu live CD/USB on GA-770T-USB3?

    You are right. IDE changed nothing.

    The drive had a Win7 installation on it. Near as I can tell the 10.10 live distro has a broken gparted on it. I created a gparted live distro, used it to wipe...

    I have tried 10.10 (both 32 and 64-bit), then 10.04 (the LTS) -- on both USB sticks and cd-ROMs. 10.10 will actually run live, but fails to install on my 1 TB WD green drive. 10.04 will not even run...

    Re: Intel recalling ALL Sandy Bridge chipsets!

    I don't know. I had an SNB build all spec'ed out this weekend. Then heard about the recall and was bummed. But why shouldn't I just go ahead with buying the defective P67 based mother board and do...

    Re: ATX motherboard into baby AT case?

    Maybe I can get an ATX tray, mount the mother board there and then attach it to the baby-AT tray?

    ATX motherboard into baby AT case?

    I have a full tower Gateway P5-150 computer. Seems like it would be fun to have a modern computer in a older computer case.

    Triple build w/ 3 different SSDs
