Forgive me for being new to FreeBSD. My career has been System V OS'es, like Solaris & HP-UX. My new biz partner has strong-armed me...er...convinced me to go FreeBSD. I am booting from the "boot only" cd (burned from the amd64 iso) for the first time. How do I put hptrr_load="YES" into /boot/loader.conf? Also on my other FreeBSD system, 'man hptrr' resulted in 'no manual page'. I've been troubleshooting a little with my biz partner. He told me there might've been something wrong with the i386 version of FreeBSD on my USB drive. So, I put an IDE DVD-ROM drive in the system and got the latest AMD64 ISO on CD. Now I'm getting... acd0: FAILURE - READ_BIG MEDIUM ERROR asc=0x11 ascq=0x00 GEOM_LABEL: Label for provider acd0 is iso9660/FreeBSD_bootonly. acd0: FAILURE - READ_BIG MEDIUM ERROR asc=0x11 ascq=0x00 *** HANG *** I also tried resetting the BIOS to "Failsafe Settings"...no luck. I'm curious, though, what the BIOS settings should be. -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/FreeBSD-7-load-hangs-on-boot-tp21039625p21045861.html Sent from the freebsd-questions mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
