The "custom configuration" uses the new USB2 stack, whereas GENERIC still includes the older one. When replacing USB2 with the old stack, I can reliably boot the system from the stick. I have another backup on a MMC card in a $5 card reader, but that one boots with USB2. The USB stick which only runs on the old stack identifies as: ugen1.2: <SanDisk> at usbus1 umass0: <SanDisk product 0x5151, class 0/0, rev 2.00/2.00, addr 2> on usbus1 pass0: <SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8.02> Removable Direct Access SCSI-0 device da0: <SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8.02> Removable Direct Access SCSI-0 device umass0: SCSI over Bulk-Only; quirks = 0x0000 I don't know if any quirks would make this product work. To me it seems as if it has to do with bulk handling? -c _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
