Hello. I'm using an old Gateway Pentium 90mhz, w/ 72MB of RAM - I don't actually know what kind of controller, but there is a second hard drive (Western Digital IDE) in the computer. I made the boot floppies for release 4.10 as indicated in the handbook and so on, and I got to the point in the installation where you select Quick, Standard, Custom. So I go to select "Standard," and the message comes up indicating the need to create (a) partition(s) to install FreeBSD. When I hit ok, I get a message saying that no disks were found on which to install FreeBSD and that I should check to see if the disks are being properly probed. The following is what appears in the device probing (I only selected parts that seemed either relevant or out of sorts):
Intel Pentium detected, installing workaround for F00F bug atapci0: RZ 100 ATA controller !WARNING! buggy chip data loss possible>port 0x3f4-0x3f7, 0x1f0-0x1f7 at device 1.0 on pci0 atapci0: Busmastering DMA not supported atapci0: Busmastering DMA disabled ata2: at 0x1f0 on atapci0 ata2: unable to allocate interrupt device_probe_and_attach: ata2 attach returned 6 isab0: <Intel 82378ZB PCI to ISA bridge> at device 2.0 on pci0 isa0: <ISA bus> on isab0 . . . acd0: failure to execute ATAPI packet command acd0: CDROM <NEC CD-ROM DRIVE:260> at ata1-master BIOSPIO (Also, when I tried again to do the standard installation but had the debugging option set, and I switched over to view the debugging info, these two messages seemed relevant:) "Can't open PC-card controller" "Can't open USB controller" I know I sound hopelessly ignorant and newbie-like, but any help anyone could offer would be so much appreciated. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
