Hi all, I am attempting to load FreeBSD 4.9 from CD onto a Micron Millenia XKU (Pentium II, 300 MHz, 390 MB RAM). The install runs very smoothly and completes successfully. But when I attempt to boot from the hard drive it just reboots.
If I tell the install to replace the MBR then the machine just continuously reboots, but I suspect that it gets as far as trying to load FreeBSD before this happens. If I tell the install to load the boot manager, then the system finds the hard drive and gives me the F1 prompt, with FreeBSD listed as the only boot option. When I press F1 the system reboots. There are no errors listed or other indication on the screen to tell me what is going on. If you can tell me what is happening, that would be great. If not, can you tell me how to trouble shoot this? Is there an image of a 'rescue disk' somewhere that would allow me to boot from diskette and read some log files? Which log files would I want to look at? How else should I proceed? What other information should I provide? I have installed FreeBSD onto one other system using these CDs and it worked great, so the CDs should not be the problem. I can load NT and MandrakeLinux onto this PC and they both work and boot from the hard drive. All help appreciated, Scott _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
