Hello, Has nay one gotten FreeBSD 5.1 Release to install on a system that has both a Promise Ultra 66 and a Promise TX4 controller cards. The Promise Ultra 66 controller controls one 20GB hard disk drive (which I would like to be the boot disk) and the Promise TX4 has 4 HD's configured in raid mode 01.
I have try to get the install to work many time but it keeps failing. The FreeBSD install see the following hard disk drives - ad10, ad12, ad4, ad6, ad8, ar0. I think the disk drives I want is ad4 but the install complains that it cannot write to the disk. I have also tried ad10 with the same effect. I would like to install to the hard disk drive that is control by the Promise Ultra 66. If I take the Promise TX4 out, the install runs just fine and install with our problems to the AD4 disk. FreeBSD boots up and running happy. However, when I then put the Promise TX4 back in and the system would not boot - I get dump to the following prompt "mountdrive" or something like that. Also, I did have this same setup working just fine under FreeBSD 4.7 Release, so I am download the ISO for 4.8 Release and will try that. System is home made, Abit BE6-II motherboard, PIII 600Mhz, 256MB, Matrox G200 AGP Video card, CDROM (on the motherboard primary controller as master) Promise Ultra66 controlling one 20GB hard disk drive, and Promise TX4 with 4 HD's in raid 01 configuration. Right now I am learning FreeBSD and so I can blow the system up any way I like. Any help would be nice, Thanks, Andrew AKA Dyslextic _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
