My 10 year old S3 failed to boot the other day. It has the original drive. The PS was recapped by timhbtr53 a couple of years ago and still seems to working fine. The boot gets past "powering up" screen and makes it to the "almost there" screen, but it never gets past this. I took he drive out and changed the boot partition using winmfs (thanks unitron). Option 2 would not boot past "powering up" and option 1 would make it to "almost there". I have tried kickstart 57 but it won't work. The smart tests passed until the overnight test. I don't know if it worked or not because the test reporting screen was gone and the test selection screen was back. So my options are 1) new drive and do a software install (no backup) 2) new drive from Weaknees 3) junk it and get a new Bolt. I'm not real keen on doing a Tivo software install since I don't really have the resources for that. Weaknees is fine but I'm not sure if that makes economic sense with a ten year old machine. Comments appreciated.
