Because of kernel panic - not syncing unable to mount root arch (...)
After kernel update edit to in /boot/brub/menu.lst:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda3 ro earlymodules=piix
initrd /boot/kernel26.img

workgroup = workgroup
server string = ylinserv
bios name = ylinserv

encrypt passwords = yes

Don't disable USB in the ASUS A8V Deluxe mobo.

Posted 12-21-2006 at 06:23 AM by Caysho

If you do, you get this:

"USB Device Over Current Status Detected
System Will Shut Down After 15 Seconds"

and it shuts down the machine - you can't get back into the BIOS.

I had to remove the CMOS battery and pull the power, then I was back to defaults.

What a braindead setting.
