After closing the hood and hooking up all the peripherals, I got a boot device error. The problem was that one of the SATA power connectors was disconnected. I reseated the connectors on both drives and they both feel a bit loose--much less insertion (or extraction!) force than I remember when building the system a little over a year ago.

It's a CoolerMaster PS, around 500W, and WD Caviar 250G SATA drives.
