I just purchased a new HP Proliant DL585 quad-opteron system. The only
"supported" OS's are SuSE and RedHat Enterprise. But, I thought what the
heck I'll try trusty FBSD on it. 4.10 installed perfectly, however I really
want 64-bit support.. So it looks like 5.2.1-RELEASE for me.
However, when trying to boot into setup from the minimal install CD, I hit a
mss_probe: no address given, try 0x530
mss_detect, busy still set (0xff)
This repeats enough times that it scrolls off the screen and I can't tell
exactly what happens before it, and the system is frozen so I can't scroll
The machine has an integrated Broadcom Gigabit, which it detects fine, and a
HP Smart Array RAID controller, which it also seems to detect. That's the
only peripherals that I'm using. I've tried disabling the integrated
"lights-out" processor and changing IRQ's of the PCI devices with no luck,
The RAID controller is in a 133MHz PCI-x slot, if that makes a difference.
Help PLEASE! I don't want to be "forced" to put Linux on this beast!
