FreeBSD DOES include the hptrr driver (among many others) in the generic kernel. Most drivers remain quiet when they find nothing to drive, but not hptrr. The message confirms that you DON'T have RocketRAID, and gives no insight into your problem. I can't really help you with that. I can tell you that FreeBSD 7.0 works fine on my nForce 630a chipset, though I do not have it configured for RAID, only AHCI. Your 720a chipset is newer, perhaps too new to be supported by FreeBSD 7.0. You might want to give 7.1 a try. You might also check if your BIOS is up to date, in case the problem is there. _______________________________________________ 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"
