Hi William,I recently installed FreeBSD 4.8 on a ThinkPad 600X. The install seemed to go fine, but when I reboot and I look at the menu, I have two choices - F1 DOS, F2 FreeBSD. There is nothing on the DOS partition, so I want to press F2.
There isn't any response however. If I hit F1 it tries to boot the remnants of the previous OS (Win98), but if I hit F2 I get squat.
Does this ring any bells for anyone? Or should I just install Windoze
first (I have to dual-boot :-( ) and then try again? Any input would be
You should install Win98 first, FreeBSD second. Win98 will overwrite the boot manager installed by BSD and you'll have to reinstall ( provided that you're using the boot manager. ). I have setup a bunch of dual boot systems ( various win versions & FreeBSD ) and never ran into the problem you are having. Did you do a custom install or the default one? Can you give any further details of what you did during the install?
