I've been trying to get a server installed with FreeBSD 6.1 from either a USB CD or floppy, or an NFS mount for nearly a week, with no luck. (The server has no CD-ROM drive or floppy drive, and is SATA-only).
When trying to boot from the FreeBSD install CD from a USB CD-ROM drive, or when booting from a boot floppy from a USB floppy drive, at the very start of booting, it starts scrolling a hexadecimal dump, and becomes unresponsive. I've set up a basic FreeBSD server install as a PXE/TFTP/NFS server and have the server booting off that into FreeBSD, but whenever I run sysinstall, I get as far as it extracting the distribution. At the first area, once it gets to 7%, it always errors out, saying that it's lost connection to the NFS mount. It never reestablished the connection and hangs there. Any ideas of anything I can do? This is really getting frustrating.
