I just updated one of our edit stations from 10.4.11 to 10.5.5. Now when the box is booted up about every other time I get the message about a disk being unreadable. I can see both the boot drive and our RAID on the desktop. When I go into Disk Utility it shows both an external SCSI drive that is labeled 320 KB Config Disk Media. What's up with that? There is nothing else connected to the mac.

Quite disturbing to have that message pop up every other boot...

Did you run it as an upgrade or did you do the preferred method of erase and install giving a cleaner system.

Does it do the same thing with absolutely nothing connected to the machine?

You could run the 10.5.6 update and see if that takes care of the issue.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

naturally I took the shortcut and did the upgrade. I am away from the system now, but will remove the RAID and see if that sheds any light.

You will also probably need to upgrade the firmware on your various output cards, video card and Raid arrays to have them preform properly in Leopard.

Dual 2.5 G5, IO, Kona LH, IO, Medea Raid, UL4D, NVidia 6800, 4Gig RAM
Octocore 8 GB Ram, Radeon card, MBP, MXO
Windows Vista Adobe Studio CS4, Vegas 8.0, Lightwave 9.3, Sound Forge 9, Acid Pro 7, Continuum 5, Boris Red 4, Combustion 2008, Sapphire Effects

I have updated drivers for the Aja card and the HBA card driver is approved for up to 10.5.5. Those are the only additional cards besides the video card that came with the mac. The phantom disk does not appear when the array is not powered up, however.
