Something weird happened to the eeePC the other day, I booted up the system and the boot up image (which displays when the BIOS starts up) wouldn't go away. Effectively the system hung at the BIOS screen. I managed to clear the BIOS image and get a more proper look at the BIOS messages and saw that it was trying to see if there was a bootable medium in a USB Mass Storage device, and since the only thing connected to the machine was the SD card, I pulled the card out and the system immediately booted into Windows.

Once the OS came up I tried to read the SD card to see what went wrong, sure enough there were problems accessing it, either Windows would stall cause it was unable to communicate with the card, or it'd ask if I wanted to format the card.

I reinserted the card a few times and then as sudden as the problem came, it vanished and everything is back to normal.

For now......
