Interesting.  I just spoke with the tech, and he says that he switched
the controller mode from "compatible" to "enhanced" and the errors
haven't happened yet.  He said he did try AHCI, but it bombed
(probably because it wasn't set that way when the drive was originally
formatted.

Should we go ahead and reset to AHCI and reinstall (again)?  Or will
"enhanced" be enough for the long run?

Thanks.
