Bug Description

I returned to my computer only to find it unresponsive, running but locked up. The only way out was the power/reset button. after my bios screen i got a black screen telling me media was not found and to check the cables. i restarted once more and after the grub menu it took me through a long checklist of my partitions and various other functions, the only listing it said it failed on was related to VirtualBox, which i had installed and uninstalled approximately a week ago.

Also discovered that my documents are unaccessable, folders are there but files such as videos do not display. on shutdown it returned me to the checklist screen, stalled and had to use power button. will update again tonight. hopefully i can still boot into Intrepid on alternate HD

Was able to boot into Intrepid, can access drive with jaunty but cannot open files or run programs on drive. i can open the /home folder and subfolders file icons are present in videos but not in music. cannot access /, /usr, /var, or /temp. unsure if this is an HD problem or a Jaunty bug since i can still boot into Jaunty.

Thank you, but the issue was due to a failing hard drive, please consider the bug dismissed

Hello Customer

Now you can keep your preferred watch for very special occasions since you can choose the same observe for just a few hundreds of dollars and be dressed in it with confidence and security anywhere you go.
Make your order before the prices go up.

*********************************************************************
I just received my PN-20 (Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic), and I have to say I'm really impressed. I have ordered from quite a few replica sites in the past, and I always ended up sending the watch back disappointed. I hope this makes it into your customer comments section. I would recommend this site to anyone. Very prompt delivery, great prices and wonderful quality.
Gramercy
