greetings all,

i just repaired my old machine by replacing the damaged motherboard
with these items

motherboard: Gigabyte GA-71XE4 (chipset AMD-75?, with single AMD Athlon cpu)
audio:       Creative SB PCI 128 (CT-4815)
video:       nVidia GeForce 4 MX440 SE
nic:         D-Link DFE-530TX+ 10/100BaseTX (be replaced with intel 10/100)

freebsd v5.2 and 5.3 boots no problems works well but freebsd v7 locks
solid right when it get to teh load image to/from "md0" device this
happens when i use teh -release cdrom to install freebsd.

i looked on google and on marc tying for gigabyte/ga-71xe4 and various
combinations of teh whole chain of bits, also tried specific freebsd
lists (-hardware and -questions) and drew blanks .. guess this will
change that .. grin.

after a bit of thinking i tried booting in 'Safe mode" it booted
properly and went on to complete the installation and is now working as
well as i have seen freebsd work on my other machines.

after starting to use safe mode i had no further problems witht eh
boot/startup lockups.

another thing thats confused me is how freebsd can work out the ide
cable is teh wrong one, dose it really make that much difference ??

i have attached the /var/run/dmesg.run and cut down version of
/var/log/messages.

please reply to address in headers .. i'm not subscribed to questions-


some light would be appreciated on this whole acpi issue and if i need
nvidia drivers to make teh video card work in normal/text mode ??

much thanks and kind regards

jonathan
