Thanks, but that didn't work either trying 7.1-BETA2 amd64 :( Forgot to mention I added memory to this server as well, took it from 2GB it was using under 5.4-RELEASE up to 6GB filling all slots, that is why I wanted to load amd64. I reduced down to 4GB and now am able to install 7.0-RELEASE i386. Does this mean that I may have a hardware issue or can FreeBSD produce the page fault I was getting when using over 4GB with i386? I would love to figure out this BTX halted issue instead...any ideas on that? -- Robert _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
