yesterday I tried to install FreeBSD 5.4-amd64 on a Sun Fire v40z.
Installation works fine, it finds any hardware and I'm able to
configure any setting.
The problem occurs when server is booting. I get a black screen and
the server reboot automatically.
Server has 4 processors AMD Opteron 850 and 2 scsi hard disk 73GB.
I tried to:
- use only a disk, the problem is the same
- install both "Standard boot" and "FreeBSD Boot Manager", the
problem is the same.
I noticed in FDisk that, after the installation, the freebsd slice
lost "bootable" property.
Please, could someone help me?
Thanks in advance,
