can't get that far
I just bought a new HP pavilion dv6000 (according to the bios and dv6158eu according to the box) AMD64 Turion x2 system. I works ok with windoze. I was able to use an autoboot linux disc with gparted to make space for free for bsd. But I can't boot the freebsd CD. I tried 6.1 and 6.2 RC2. I also tried the AMD64 version of FreeBSD.
here is the error I get with FreeBSD 6.2 RC2 AMD/64.
ata2-master: pio=PI04 wdma=WDMA2 udma=UDMA100 cable=40 wire

When I tried to run the i386 version in safe mode, without acpi ... I got a segmentation error and it rebooted. When I tied i386 in boot mode 5, verbose loggin, I got the same messages as with AMD64. I can boot it in safe mode with the AMD64 version. But when I ran the setup program and tried to create slices and partions, it was very incoherent, so I stopped.
according to Windows the hard drive is a: "SAMSUN HM120JI", the IDE ATA/ATAPI controlers are: "NVIDIA nForce 430/410 Serial ATA controler", "Primary IDA Channel", "Ricoh Memory Stick Host Controller", "Ricoh MMC Host Controller", "Ricoh xD-Picture Card Host Controler", "Secondary IDE Channel" and "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller".
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has or will have this problem and who doesn't want to wait till next release to use his/her new HP laptop. I'm not a kernel programmer but I have a couple of years of C/C++ and FreeBSD administration experience, and I am a fast learner. Tell me how I can help fix this.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
