I have an OLD machine (from 1996) that's been running FreeBSD for about 8 years now steady and reliable. It has gone through several versions and was running 4.11 untill today when I decided to make a fresh 6.1 install.
When booting from the installation CD the only way I can make it skip a lot of harddrive errors is when I boot in safe mode. I did this and installed the system. However, the same problems are there when I reboot from harddrive after the install (not in safe mode). Here are a few of the error messages I get: ad0: Failure READ_DMA timed out LBA=0 ad1: Failure READ_DMA timed out LBA=13281487 ad1: Timeout READ_DMA retrying (1 retry left) LBA=0 and so on... It ends with a mountroot> prompt. Any ideas what I can try?
