Does anyone know the magic incantation that will permit me to install FreeBSD on this new machine of mine (nVidia chipset, SATA1 disk controller)?


I've been trying for a week or so now, with no luck. Just out of curiosity, I downloaded and ran Ubuntu 8.x, and it recognized all of my hardware automatically. The FreeBSD installer (both in 7.x and 8.x), though, can't find my hard drive or CD-ROM.

I *really* don't want to have to resort to Linux, not after using FreeBSD for 12 years now, but if I can't find a solution to this problem, I'll have no choice. :-(

Thanks for any advice.

Can u not get thru the install, or do you have issues afterwards?
I make it thru the install ok, but when I upgrade to stable, I have problems due to numbering changes. I'd suggest using google or the freebsd website to search for your motherboard model and some other search terms.
You'll probably be told to check the supported hw list to start with.
