This afternoon I flashed my ND-3500 with LD V2 Beta 7. The flash appeared to go fine. I was instructed to reboot my computer and I did so. My HPD10 hung at the "Press F9 for Boot Menu F10 to Setup..." screen for a long time, the screen went black and just sat there. I wasn't sure what was wrong and needed to leave so I walked away from the PC. I came home about four hours later and the system had booted but did not show a DVDR drive.
This time I rebooted and went into the BIOS setup menu - the system sees that I have an ND-3500 as my secondary IDE device. When I do a normal boot - same thing - screen goes black and it took about 25 minutes to boot. Once the system boots it seems to function okay - but still can't see the DVDR.
I've looked through the BIOS and everything seems fine - it's set to autodetect, the boot order is floppy, CD, HDD.
Any idea what might have happened? I don't care so much about the drive at this point but I can't wait 25 minutes every time I need to reboot!
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
