    System Down

    My home system has been down since Thursday (11/30/06) due to the winter storm that has hit the midwest. I'm in the St. Louis, MO area, first we got rain, freezing rain, sleet and then snow. Now all hell has broken out.

    Tree limbs are falling all over the place breaking power lines throughout the metro area, including some parts on the IL side. It started with over 500,000 without power but now around 300,000 without.

    Last I heard from the local electric company, it could be another 2+ days before all have power. I hate this, we just went through a power outage last July and mine was out for about 2 weeks.

    Let us pray!

    That's not a good sign. Especially as the worst of winter is yet to come.

    Well the good news is my power is back on today since noon time. But my internet provider is still down or at least for my area of town.

    This is one reason why I hate winter time, causes too much pain besides cold!

    BIOS configuration is most likely. Check that its set to the right access mode.

    Or the BIOS update. Some older BIOS won't see larger drives. Why not reset the BIOS to default value and go from there. Let the BIOS pick up the hardware.

    Oh BTW, I heard the storm was pretty bad. They are talking about suing power company like they can do much better.
