I have a Pentium 4 2,66 GHz, 512 MB RAM, 80 GB UDMA HardDisk which in Linux is recognized to have a Intel 82801DB Ultra ATA Storage Controller (IDE). For more details about the chipset and other things, one can eventually visit:
(please see the right column).
On my Hard Disk I have the following partition scheme:
1st primary partition --> Fedora Core 1 (Linux) 2nd primary partition --> Swap Partition 3rd primary partition --> Linux From Scratch 4th partition --> extended partition 5th logical partition --> Swap 6th logical partition --> Linux From Scratch (for experimental purposes) 7th logical partition --> Swap 8th logical partition --> Linux From Scratch (for experimental purposes either) 9th logical partition --> Swap
I am bothering you with this scheme because I'm not quite sure it has to do with my problem, but maybe the information will help you to assist me.;)
AFAIK, my hardware is supported by FreeBSD 4.9 and 5.2.
I downloaded the iso's of both the releases of FreeBSD (4.9 and 5.2), burnt them on CD-ROM and tried to install a FreeBSD on my system.
Unfortunately, with both releases I totally get stuck when I in Sysinstall choose for "Begin a standard installation.." After Sysintall said to me it is going to try to find my hard disk, I get the error message:
"No disks found! ..." (followed by the message that I have to check if my storage controller was properly been probed by the kernel). After several attempts and having seen the kernel coming up, I ensured myself that the kernel probed my controller properly. Though my hard disk is not recognized!
Of course I have tried to enable/disable several drivers in the kernel configuration menu (which I only was able to with the 4.9 - release), but none of all tried combinations did work.
I start to get a little desperate now, so I hope very hopefully that someone on this list can point me in the right direction.
Thanks anyway for your attention!

Your problem is that all 4 of your bootable partitions are used on linux.
