Hmmm. I was able to clean out two of those once using the fixit CD boot. But, if you can't get it to boot at all, it will be a problem. Did you try to just bot normally, but look at the BIOS on the way up? You may have to set something in the BIOS. I don't know the key combination to hit on a VIO to get in to BIOS, but it should tell somewhere. ////jerry > > Yours, > Niyi > > NiyiChrist > > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
