Thanks for reponse,

Problem is the boot partition can not be found.
I burned a install cdm using it I find I have set ad4s2 to be
bootable, so I changed it back.
But this time, the system said I have missing something on boot...

I do not want to waste too much time on it, as I can have the back up
data, So I re install using the new burned CD...

Best whies,
