Hello, I'm trying to venture into the world of BSD. Thus, I have just recently joined the mailing list and this is my first message. I have tried to research my question and found a similar problem, but I was unable to find any type of solution.
Here's What's Happening: After I boot my laptop to the installer CD and select what I'd like to boot (I've tried the default, no acpi, and safe mode with the same results), the installer seems to lock up the computer after the following two lines: Timecounter "TSC" frequency 1600070929 Hz quality 800 Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec At this point the computer responds to nothing but holding down the power button, which obviously kills the power. Just in case it was trying to work something out (after all, the "thinking" light was on), I let my laptop sit for almost four hours with still no change. I have used Debian and Fedora on this computer previously with no problems (and obviously Windows works also). Since there are really no other options as far as booting goes, I really don't know what I've done wrong or what I can do. Just is case it helps, here is some information about my system: Compaq Presario M2105US AMD Mobile Sempron processor 1GB RAM ATI Express 200M graphics card w/ shared memory Also, I've tried to use the 2CD set and Boot Only CD for the i386. Thanks in advance for your help. ~Justin _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
