Now, my question is:
Was the fact that this happened after running F10
a pure coincidence?
I'm intending to look at the CMOS battery,
and perhaps try re-installing the BIOS.
Any other suggestions gratefully received.
There is no OS known that touching a BIOS. A OS does READ the BIOS. So yes,
maybe you need to replace CMOS backup battery.
Also, on a old mainboard i have just 1 HDD set in bios, rest of the 3 HDD's
are not set. Still any kind of Linux does see all the drives. So maybe Linux
does not read BIOS at all.
