The machine is a ordinary Core 2 duo 6750 with 4GB of ram.
Yes, I believe fdisk and bsdlabel both have a limitation at 2TB. If you partition the disk using GPT instead it should work with large disks. Unfortunately I don't think sysinstall supports GPT, and most BIOS do support booting from a GPT partitioned disk, so the boot volume needs to be smaller than 2TB. > > /Regards Goran > > On Dec 13, 2007 5:39 PM, Göran Nilsson <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > On the controller there it says that it supports freebsd 6.1.
