Something a bit similar just happened to me.
I was going to add a Promise Utra100 card to my second computer, which hasn't been used for months.
Took longer than expected, much plugging and
unplugging, etc etc etc
Now I can't boot from live CD (DSL 4x or 3x); computer reboots by itself after the "OK, booting the kernel", around the time it does the scanning for USB.
Have tried different CD-ROM drives, burned new DSL CDs, etc
Have removed hard drives, etc, including the Promise card, and left only video card and memory - also removed and reseated memory. Also removed CMOS battery, in case settings had been messed up.
This computer used to be fine.
Any idea as to how to fix it?
