Well FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 is running on my box with Windiws XP in
dual boot. So the installation definitely works.
Ok, that is already a good hint. What boot manager do you use for that dual boot system?
First of all, have u fixed the master
drive at the end of the cable and the slave drive in the middle
I need to check that. I did not know about such a preference, and assumed both connectors are equal.
probability you have already guessed. Yes it may be the BIOS. Its a
good move to search the manufacturer site for updated BIOS and flash
it. However be careful.
Perhaps I better try to get a newer board.. but then I need newer ram, newer proc.. the usual upgrade madness. :)
Thirdly, I would say put the 40G drive as
master as olders drives have buggy controller firmware and they *may*
create troubles in case of newer slaves.
OK, I'll try that.
Fourtly, Jumper the drives
explicitly to be master and slave. Do not rely on the CS.
I hope, I did that. But I check.
Thanks a lot for the hints! Marc _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
