Hi, Initial floppy install with 5.2.1. We have 12 PCs for a classroom which are completely identical. They have a P4P800-VM motherboard with updated BIOS. The CPU is Intel 2.8 GHZ. For the strangest reason, the install worked on 1 machine and failed on all the others we tried it on. It is NOT the diskettes as we are using the same physical install diskettes for all these machines. We thought it may be a BIOS problem - we checked the functionning system against all the other system - they are identical. We have one other system which is different than the others and the install went also fine.
Now, the install works without a problem with 4.10 floppies. Any idea? It seems to fail before is starts to detect the pci-isa bridge but it was not an issue with our first machine. pci0: <serial bus, SMBus> at device 31.3 (no driver attached) pci0: <multimedia, audio> at device 31.5 (no driver attached) Fatal trap 9: general protection fault while in kernel mode cpuid = 0; apic id = 00 instruction pointer = 0x58:0x2d6c stack pointer = 0x10:0xf80 frame pointer = 0x10:0x0 code segment = base 0xc00f0000, limit 0xffff, type 0x1b = DPL 0, pres 1, def32 0, gran 0 processor eflags = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0 current process = 0 (swapper) trap number = 9 panic: general protection fault --- Martin Laflamme Operations VP CCNA, CCNP, CCDA, CCDP Cisco Certified Academy Instructor [EMAIL PROTECTED] Marketbridge Technologies, Inc. http://www.marketbridge.com Suite B-101 1066 Somerset St. West Ottawa, ON K1Y 4T3 Office: (613) 728-5504 Toll Free: (877) 595-5504 Cell: (613) 295-5504 FAX: (613) 841-8370 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
