Hi,

I spent a couple of days trying to install FreeBSD 7.1 amd64 on a Dell
PowerEdge 2950.

It won't finish booting properly from the installation CD:

with default boot, single user and verbose it stops at:
fdc0: ...
device_attach: fdc0 attach returned 6

with ACPI disabled and Safe mode it stops at:
md0: Preloaded insge <boot/mfroot>...
Trying to mount root from ufs /dev/md0

After it hangs, I waited about half hour and had to power down the
machine.

Dell PowerEdge 1950 and 200 are not affected.

Any help?

TIA,

Olivier
