Most common cause is a faulty hints file, since you can't install from CD either, the GENERIC hints aren't working for this system. You could try 7.2- RELEASE cd and file a PR otherwise. The dmesg from linux would be useful information in this PR. > Is there anything I can do with the loader prompt to see what is happening > when this occurs?

You can disable the AGP at loader prompt, similar to how one would do that in the hints file: hint.agp.0.disabled="1" -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
