I have a Dell Poweredge 2300/350 machine that I'm trying to install 5.0-RELEASE on via the CD. I'm getting an unusual error that my searches have revealed very little on (seems to be a problem a lot of laptop users get, although this is a 6U server).
Server setup is as follows: Dual 350Mhz 512MB RAM RAID5 via Perc SC/2 (does detect successfully) Booting off RELEASE ISO CD I boot, kernel starts to detect hardware and then these are the last few lines I get before the machine hangs (hard...have to use reset switch. Can't even get a light change from hitting "num lock" anymore) boot -v results: atapci0: <Intel PIIX4 ATA33 controller> port 0xffa0-0xffaf at device 7.1 on pci0 atapci0: Busmastering DMA not supported ata0: iobase=0x01f0 altiobase=0x03f6 bmaddr=0x0000 ata0: at 0x1f0 irq 14 on atapci0 Ata1: iobase=0x0170 altiobase=0x0376 bmaddr=0x0000 ata1: at 0x170 irq 15 on atapci0 uhci0: <Intel 72371AB/EB (PIIX4) USB controller> port 0-0x1f at device 7.2 on pci0 pci_cfgintr_search: linked (63) to configured irq 14 at 0:8:0 pci_cfgintr: 0:7 INTD routed to irq 14 And that's it. Dead in the water. I thought that maybe I'd move forward by disabling the USB ports in the BIOS but these damn older Dells don't let you do that. I've never run into anything quite like this...
