Hi, As the subject says, I can't get the 7.2-RELEASE i386 CD to boot on a system that has:
Abit KV8 Pro (K8T800P-8237-6A7L1A1BC-26) motherboard with the most recent BIOS - BIOS release 26 4/20/2007 ( http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=KV8+Pro&fMTYPE=Socket+754) An AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8Ghz CPU 1 Gb RAM An ATI 1050 256mb AGP video card I think I have turned off everything ACPI related in the BIOS setup. When I boot the i386 ISO, the kernel boots to the point of probing the PCI bus and then hangs completely, even the keyboard is locked up. I've unplugged all the disks, so the only things in the system are the CD drive, the floppy drive, and the video card. I have turned off acpi at boot time, and when I boot the i386 ISO verbosely, the last few lines the kernel spews are: pci_open(1): mode 1 addr port (0x0cf8) is 0x8000c060 pci_open(1a): mode1res=0x80000000 (0x80000000) pci_cfgcheck: device 0 [class=060000] [hdr=80] is there (id=02821106) pcibios: BIOS version 2.10 pcib0: <MPTable Host-PCI bridge> pcibus 0 on motherboard pci0: <PCI Bus> on pcib0 pci0: domain=0, physical bus=0 There's no PCI cards plugged in, just the AGP video card. When I try booting the AMD64 ISO, the boot loader runs, I get the boot menu, and regardless of what boot options I give the kernel, I get the message "CPU doesn't support long mode" and then I get the OK prompt. I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a h/w problem, it'll boot and install Fedora 11, Win2K, WinXP, and runs every DOS based diagnostic app I can find with no problems. Anyone have any suggestions, or should I file a PR? Thanks! - ericr _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
