It was referenced by an OS that generically worked, but then did not
after the modification of the adapter.
Note that it has not been established that any particularity of the
adapter firmware is at the root of this problem. The meaning and cause
of the messages and behavior I'm seeing remain unknown.

I don't believe so, but it has been a long time.

The one thing you have not done is explain the meaning of the messages

I'm not optimistic, but one never knows.

It was quite some time ago. Much water has passed beneath the bridge.

I've known it for years, but my evaluation of the pros and cons
continues to evolve.

Yes, I did.

Someone might suggest that in order to seem knowledgeable, rather than
admit that he has no clue as to the source of the problem.

Overall I have a fair number of years of experience in that capacity.
Currently I only administer my own systems.

I don't think they'd approve of FreeBSD.

A couple of decades.

Small children have a way of getting straight to the point that their
elders might sometimes do well to emulate.

I haven't tried any other distributions. I don't know the source of the
boot problem, so it's hard to say.

Apply that same logic consistently, and you'll see the source of my

The certification tests are not exhaustive.
