Hi people,

Hi people,
I am Tom and I have been attempting to install FreeBSD 7.0 from a dvd.
I put the dvd in the drive and boot, the boot screen appears with the optio=
ns default, acpi disabled, safe mode, etc, I then select default.
The hardware probing/detecting scrolls by and then comes to a halt with the=
 following line:

GEOM_LABLE: Lable for provider acd0 is is09660/FreeBSD 7.

I have also on other boot attempts tried acpi disabled, safe mode with the =
same outcome.
Have selected single user on another attempt and sysinstall program boots, =
after going through setting up the hard drive and paritions durring the ins=
tall of the os the following error occurs numerous times:

Write failure on transfer!
(write 0 bytes of 1425408 bytes) 100%

Just wondering if this has occured to any one else and how they got around =
Look forward to replys, thanks
