Hi everyone, I just replaced my computer's motherboard for an ASUS TUSL2
Intel 815E ATX Motherboard.
When I try to boot the FreeBSD 5.2.1 or 4.9 Install CD, the system hangs
at the next lines:
acpi_cpu: throtttling enabled, 16 steps (100% to 6.2%), currently 100%
GEOM: create disk ad0 dp=0xc3150560
ad0: 58623 MB <Maxtor 96147U8> [119108/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA66
GEOM: create disk ad1 dp=0x31e6c60
ad1: 38166MB <ST340810A> [77545/16/63] at ata0-slave UDMA100
(and no more)
The disks are alright, since they used to work perfectly with the older
motherboard. If I could, I'd use the old motherboard and throw the new
one away, but unfortunately the older motherboard doesn't work with the
wireless card I bought (a 3com a/b/g -atheros based one). I've tried
booting with and without all cards (Except the video one), and even
disabling the HDDs (phisically disconnecting them), and unfortunately
FreeBSD always gets stuck.
I've tried booting without HDs, with one or the other, with and without
acpi, in safe mode, with flag hw.pci.allow_unsupported_io_range=1.
What other steps may I try?
Thanks a lot in advance
