This is the output after reinstalling Biolinux 8 on my new laptop:
 $ parted /dev/sda print

Model: ATA ST1000LM024 HN-M (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 1000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start   End    Size     Type       File system    Flags
 1      1049kB  994GB  994GB    primary    ext4           boot
 2      994GB   1000GB 6347MB   extended         
 3      994GB   1000GB 6347MB   logical    linux-swap(v1)

As I said, Biolinux is now running flawlessly.

pnpbios -- support for embedded devices on the motherboard DESCRIPTION
The pnpbios driver enumerates embedded ISA devices on the motherboard whose BIOS supports ``Plug and Play BIOS Specification''. It assigns ISA bus resources (interrupt line, DMA channel, I/O ports, and memory region) to each device and activates it. If it cannot assign necessary resources to a device without causing conflict with other devices in the system, the device will not be acti- vated and will be unavailable to programs. CAVEATS
There is no explicit way to disable individual embedded devices. The pnpbios driver will find all devices reported by the ``Plug and Play (PnP)'' BIOS and try to activate them all. There is no way to explicitly assign particular resource to a device. The resource assignment is fully automatic and there is no provision for manual override. SEE ALSO
