Hi list,

i wanted to try out 64 bit support on my ASUS A8V Deluxe with
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+

I downloaded 6.1-BETA4-amd64-disc1.iso from the FreeBSD ftp site, burned a disc an booted from it.

However, it failed:

Waiting 5 seconds for SCSI devices to settle

panic: sym: VTOBUS FAILED

Booting with ACPI disabled or safe mode did not help.

Googling and searching the ML did not show any hints.

Any ideas?

It may be due to this:


I tried to install a SCSI card that uses the sym driver on my amd64 machine last week and it had a panic with the same message. It works fine in an i386 machine but I am unable to use it on my amd64 box. Someone sent me the card for free and I already have an Adaptec on order to use with the amd64, but from what I understand that driver doesn't work with amd64 yet.

If possible, try removing the SCSI card and then trying to boot. It should work then.
