I'm trying to add another hard drive into my system, a 250GB Western
Digital 7200RPM SATA drive, and when I have it plugged into the
motherboard the system hangs when it gets to:
Timecounter "TSC" frequency 1803775604 Hz quality 800
Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec
acd0: CDRW <LITE-ON COMBO SOHC-4836K/SPJ2> at ata1-master UDMA33
ad4: 114473MB <Seagate ST3120213AS 3.AHH> at ata2-master SATA150
Normally, I see the following line right after that:
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad4s1a
and then the mount messages, the daemon starting messages, and the login
When I have the new hard drive plugged into a free SATA port on the
motherboard, it hangs the system hard, I have to unplug the box from the
wall to shut it down.
The BIOS sees that drive just fine.
If I unplug it from the SATA port on the motherboard, the system starts
up just fine again.
