I reinstalled and, during installation, I recreated the partition tables. That seemed to do the trick. Now it boots from the hard drive. Thanks.

I had the Betterpower 8 cell battery. It died just after the warranty expired (~7mo). MDD did nothing but offer to sell me another one. I went back to the OEM.

Thanks! That worked great. Love the two fingered scrolling. Need to use lighter touch with one finger though or it stalls. All in all, it makes the trackpad finally usable.
