I've downloaded and burned the boot CD for the i386 6.2-RELEASE. I've used
the CD to install a very well running system on my laptop, but it halts
during boot when I try to install with the same CD on my desktop PC. The
last line it outputs before halting is the following:
acd0: DVDR <PLEXTOR DVDR PX-708A/1.12> at ata1-master UDMA33

The install doesn't actually crash - I can still enable / disable Num
Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock, and the Ctrl-Alt-Space shortcut works. It
just never seems to continue (unless I actually have to wait for several
minutes).

This drive is the only CD/DVD drive, and, hence, the one which the boot CD
is in. The drive works in both Windows and SUSE. Taking out the CD after the
boot image has been loaded doesn't help.

I've tried to boot in safe mode and with ACPI disabled, but I get the same
result.

Some other things noted during boot:

$PIR: No matching entry for 0.2.INTA

Does anyone have any tips for what might be wrong? Do you need more
information?


Some clarification:

  - I've used the DVD drive on Windows and Linux (in the same machine)
  for years, and it still works with those.
  - I was able to install FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE or 6.1-RELEASE using the
  same drive.
