I just removed the PCI card and found the very same values. This is
probably normal since these values where stored when then pci card was
inserted. Then I changed both values removing the "pci(0)" part and the
system booted correctly.
Later on, I halted the system, plugged in the pci card again, booted and
looked at those values. They were still without the "pci(0)" part and
the system booted correctly.
So, I think something changed these values, maybe because I had this pci
board installed, but the variables value doesn't require the "pci(0)",
at least until you boot using the internal controller :-)
