Hello. I'm installing FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE on a brand new system with Intel D975XBX2 board. It seems that FreeBSD does not support the onboard Marvell 88SE6145 SATA controller. Could someone confirm this?
At first, when I tried to boot the installation CD, the loader hung very early in the process with the message "BTX halted". But when I went to the BIOS and disabled "Secondary SATA controller" (in Advanced, Peripheral Configuration), the CD booted and the install began alright. By the way, I did the BIOS upgrade (to version BX97520J.86A.2674), but that didn't help. Even though the board has another RAID controller (ICH7-R/ICH7-DH), I really would like to get both of them working. This system is going to be a server and I was going to hook up 6 hard drives to it: 2 as RAID1 and 4 as RAID5. Now that I figured out what was causing the "BTX halted" error, I'm going to complete the installation, and then try to enable the Marvell controller back. Let's see if that works. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
