Dear list,

I'd like to install FreeBSD 7.2 on my computer for testing purpuse and
eventually remove my Linux installation. Using FreeBSD in VirtualBox
works fine, so far. I can't install it on my real hardware, as the
installation media won't boot:


The boot menu appears, but as soon as I press a button OR around one
second elapses I get a message from the bootstrap loader (have a look at
the image).

Can't work out which disk we are booting from.

And the system seems frozen. This happens with the AMD64 install media.
Using i386 install media I get the same message, but the system reboots
automatically. Even the PC-BSD install media have the same problem.

My hardware:

Gigabyte board with AMD 770 chipset, two SATA disk in AHCI mode, an IDE
DVD drive (so nothing special).

Other bootable optical disks (e.g. using isolinux or grub) work fine.

What might be the problem?

Thanks a lot for your help,
