WOL it shows some errors - ata3 softreset failed (first fis failed)

  • guys can you help me with this one. When I bring my machine out from WOL it shows some odd errors.

    detected hardware unit hang on e1000e which is my NIC, I have an Intel Dual NIC so I could created a bond.
    the other errors maybe normal related to reset adapter unexpectedly and then speed change to port.

    The next one leaves me right at the error. If I hit enter it goes to the
    normal login but not sure why it just sits there at this prompt

    If I hit entry I am at the login screen


  • I think I figured this out, or at least for now it seems resolve. Seems this was related to my drive being NTFS. I backed up my data and reformatted with ext4 partitions. I tested this out on one drive and now I setup the second and will check tomorrow on wake. All drives are Seagate, either NAS or Barracuda versions. Just updating if someone runs into this as well and has a similar setup.

    Update: I tested it and it seemed to resolve it only to come back on one drive. I think it maybe that one of my drives was connected to the RAID controller ports. I had read online people mentioning drives connected to those ports may give this error. Now all drives are on the non raid ports. Hopefully this time it will resolve it.
