For the first time after 3 and half years of honorable career of my Sony VAIO VGN-FE21M with triple boot, I've seen this message at boot:
Probing EDD (edd=off to disable) ....
then the boot hang up for a few minutes with a flashing cursor immediately after the message and finally it booted the default OpenSuse 11.1 in the usual way.
I tried to search LQ, Wikipedia, Google... but even if the message has been reported by many people, nobody gave the answer to the question running in my mind:
Should I start to think about the funeral for my beloved notebook? Should I consider to do an additional backup copy of the backup of my disk, just for sure? Thank you.
