I would not be concerned about an error indicating flash pattern 
upon initial power up unless your drive has been running for 15 minutes,
you've waited until then to power on the computer, and you still 
get a bad flash in response to the computer's boot.  I also wait 
for a while before attempting ?ds$ [enter].  This is documented the 
adendum to the drive manual.
