Comment 33 for bug 445852

I have the same issue as reported above with an eeepc 701 (with 16GB SuperTalent SSD, and also with the original 8GB SSD).

An alternate method of fixing a Karmic-corrupted SSD - at least on the 701 - is to boot with ASUS's rescue DVD and allow it to reinstall the default Xandros installation.

With Karmic installed, I can confirm that kernel option "irqpoll" stops the stall during a Karmic boot, but does anyone know if that stops Karmic from messing up the SSD?
