Hello I'm trying to bootstrap the system using boot2 directly as described in the Admin Guide (3rd edition, 2004, section 2.3) and in the man page for boot(8), FreeBSD 6.0, dated 18/08/2005. However, no matter which kernel I choose at the boot prompt, I always get "BTX halted" error message with some memory(?) register values before.
Bootstrapping with loader(8) works fine, I can load any kernel. What am I missing? I use FreeBSD 6.0-release on compaq armada 1700 laptop. I've read several reports when people cannot boot FreeBSD at all on compaq PC/laptops. The recommendations were to switch from UDMA to DMA in BIOS. As far as I can see with Compaq Setup for Portables, I use DMA. thanks anton -- Anton Shterenlikht Room 2.6, Queen's Building Mech Eng Dept Bristol University University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TR, UK Tel: +44 (0)117 928 8233 Fax: +44 (0)117 929 4423 _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
