Hola: What do you mean by "it doesn't detect my IDE drives"? FreeBSD installer doesn't even load and it gives you an error like ERR M or FreeBSD installer loads, and when you go to setup partitions there is nothing there?
You might want to try installing the HD in an older computer, loading FreeBSD (the minimal) and then putting the HD back in your machine. This has worked for me a couple of time... I haven't really looked into as to see what actually happen, but i know it has worked =) Let us know... Lester A.
