I have a new XPS 700 Pentium D 3.6 Dual Core with 2 gigs RAM, 2 250 GB SATA drives, and 2 NVIDIA GeForce 7900GS video cards.
So far I have tried:
6.0-RELEASE - will boot to sysinstall but finds no drives.
6.1-RELEASE - hangs after probing md0 and first hard drive.
6.1-STABLE - hangs after probing md0 and first hard drive.
7.0-CURRENT - hangs after probing md0 and both hard drives.
I have unplugged the USB keyboard and mouse and used a PS/2 keyboard, removed 1 gig of memory and removed the secondary hard drive and DVD. Nothing makes a difference. Disabling ACPI causes a panic on all versions.
