Can't boot from HDD, CD, or USB
After "Waiting for dev to be fully populated", I get errors like:
Module unix not found in modles.dep
Module unknown not found in modles.dep
Module swap not found in modles.dep
killing '/sbin/modprobe -b acpi : PNP0400
killing '/sbin/modprobe -b : pcspkr
killing '/sbin/modprobe -b : LNXCPU
... 7:0:0:0 [sdc] no caching mode present
Sorry if these errors are not 100% verbose or complete but I have no way of copying all of them... and they cycle on the screen indefinitely.
The other day I reset the CMOS by putting a flat head screwdriver on the tips of the 2 pins and I saw a little shock between the pins. The computer was unplugged at the time. Was this the dreaded "static shock"?
Thanks for reading.
