Agreed. I was unsure whether to being it up myself, but used similar

To conclude this thread, no file-system corruption occurred, but some
aspect of hardware was getting corrupted in such a way I misconcluded
a software problem. That is, it seems that a hardware reset doesn't
always reset all of the hardware on this computer, and Mach didn't
like that but for Linux it was OK.

Sorry for any confusion caused.
