Well, still no joy. :-( I have tried booting from Boot-only, Disc1, LiveFS. Additionally, I've tried the default boot, "with ACPI disabled", "Safe Mode", "single user mode", and "verbose logging". Every CD and every boot type gives me the exact same errors... at the beginning: ... acpi0: reservation of fee00000, 1000 (3) failed acpi0: reservation of 0, a0000 (3) failed acpi0: reservation of 100000, c7f00000 (3) failed and at the end: ... hptrr: no controller detected. acd0: DVDROM <SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-616F/F104> at ata0-master UDMA33 acd0: FAILURE READ_BIG MEDIUM ERROR asc=0x11 ascq=0x00 GEOM_LABEL: Label for provider acd0 is iso9660/FreeBSD_xxx (where xxx is the disc I'm using). acd0: FAILURE - READ_BIG MEDIUM ERROR asc=0x11 ascq=0x00 *** HANG *** BTW, the *** HANG *** requires a hard reset. Also, I read some hearsay in other forums that the READ_BIG error could be caused by the write speed when the ISO is burned to CD. So, I tried downgrading the burn speed from 52x to 16x. No joy. It didn't change a thing. -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/FreeBSD-7-load-hangs-on-boot-tp21039625p21046636.html Sent from the freebsd-questions mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
