Hi, I can't boot my FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE (both with the stock kernel and with a self-compiled kernel), if my AdvanSys SCSI Host Adapter (ISA, ABP5140) is installed. The problem was also there while installing FreeBSD, but I simply removed the SCSI card during the installation. Without the card everything works perfectly.
Here is some output during the boot process: (I had to type it off the screen, because it got never written to disk. Anybody got a solution for this?) [...] adv1: AdvanSys SCSI Host Adapter, SCSI ID 7, queue depth 16 adv1: <ABP5140> at port 0x110 iomem 0xc8000-0xcffff irq 10 drq 5 on isa0 [...] Waiting 10 seconds for SCSI devices to settle [After about 1 minute] (probe6:adv1:0:6:0): Timed out (probe6:adv1:0:6:0): Attempting abort (probe6:adv1:0:6:0): Timed out (probe6:adv1:0:6:0): Resetting bus adv1: No longer in timeout [After about another minute] (probe5:adv1:0:5:0): Timed out (probe5:adv1:0:5:0): Attempting abort (probe5:adv1:0:5:0): Timed out (probe5:adv1:0:5:0): Resetting bus adv1: No longer in timeout After that output I waited about half an hour (!) and nothing happened. I don't think that it makes sense to wait any longer. There is only one SCSI drive attached to the SCSI card: An internal Yamaha CD-Writer (4416). Its SCSI ID is 3. Changing the ID just results in a slightly different output. For example if I change it to 6, the output is about timeouts on ID 3 and 5, instead of 6 and 5. With Writer on 4 the output is about ID 3 and 2. And so on. I tried every SCSI ID, but none works. The SCSI termination is also configured correctly. But I don't think that this is a hardware related problem, because the same hardware configuration worked perfectly under Linux. (And some time ago it worked under Windows.) Any ideas?
