Does anyone have any direct experience running FreeBSD on the Intel
S3210SHLC motherboard? If so, what problems have you run into? I'm
trying to use FreeBSD 7.0, but I don't know yet if the problems are
specific to 7.0 or not. The DVD reader/writer is an LG GH20NS10 SATA
drive. Motherboard BIOS is release 45, BMC is release 31, and FRUSDR is 13.
As per another thread I started, creating a serial console installation
CD is just not working for me, although I'm still pursuing it. I managed
to install FreeBSD 7.0 using the standard installer CD (aka internal
console), but any deviation from that seems impossible.
Creating a bootable USB flash thumb drive doesn't work either, despite
having enabled such functionality in BIOS. In fact, getting this
motherboard to boot from a USB thumb drive doesn't seem to work whether
it contains FreeBSD or something else entirely.
I've had a couple of incidents where pressing the reset button actually
powers down the server for 5 seconds or so before automatically powering
back up. Not a big deal, but doesn't instill confidence in this motherboard.
