Hi,



I'm facing issues with installing and updating of FreeBSD 8.2 (i386) under =
Hyper-V (Windows Server 2008, Service Pack 2):



1. Update Freebsd 8.0 (i386) -> 8.2 under Hyper-V (via cvsup)

FreeBSD 8.0 is running fine under Hyper-V on this system since a long time.=
 I had no issues at the time when I installed it. Now I tried to update it =
to a more recent version:



No issues with "make buildworld", "make buildkernel", but after "make insta=
llkernel" the VM does not boot any longer. Instead the following error mess=
age is displayed: "freebsd ld-elf.so.1 libc.so.7 unsopported version Elf_Ve=
rdef".



2. Then I tried to install FreeBSD 8.2 into a new VM (via ISO image)



I received several error messages during the installation, several packages=
 can't be installed: "Add of Package xx aborted, error code 0".



Debug Screen:



ldconfig: warning: /usr/local/Lib: No such file or directory

pkg_add: could' t remove temporary dir '/var/tmp/instmp.y3gyg8'

pkg_add: leave_playpen: can' chdir back to ''

pid 72 (sh), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped) pid 73 (sh), uid 0: e=
xited on signal 11 (core dumped) ...

(several similiar lines with "core dumped" follow.)



Eventually the installation abends with: "Could'nt extract the following di=
stributions. This may be because they were not available on the installatio=
n media you've chosen:" (A lot of packages are

displayed.)



Then:



"Cannot dump. Device not defined or unavailable. Automatic reboot in 15 sec=
onds - press a key on the console to abort"



After the restart the bootloader displays several error messages with dump =
info and then stops with "BTX halted".

I did validate the MD5 sum of the image.



Another attempt to use VHD as SCSI disk failed as well -> the drive is not =
recognized (No Disks Found!)



Then I tested the installation of FreeBSD 8.2 (same image) on my desktop un=
der Virtualbox (Windows 7) successfully. This did work without issues. Unfo=
rtunately this does not help with my Windows Server 2008.



Is this a known issue?



Thanks,

Roland
