I've had nothing but trouble with supermicron systems :(
...and it usually stems from the mass storage controllers (unless its
the motherboard dying...again) . As a test, download and burn the 1.2
cdrom image and see if it works. If I use an ide -> cf converter it
works, but never with the raid controller and hard drives, at least
with the models I've used.
Good luck.
