Trying to boot off the 6.0-release amd64 installation CD on an HP
xw9300 workstation (1 opteron 280 / nvidia nforce professional / 4GB
memory), it aborts with the following message:
panic: No BIOS smap info from loader!
This looks very similar with the following report, also on an HP
Does anybody run freebsd on an xw9300?
Has anybody seen the above message?
Is there a workaround?
(Looking at the boot code, it seems a symptom that a BIOS interrupt is
not working correctly, but this alone doesn't help...)
