It seems like i am awfully unlucky :-( ,getting two bad HDDs in a row
or iam doing something terribly wrong.
With my new HDD ;installed ubuntu and this time installed PC bsd not
freebsd ,in a separate partition.
It booted up once into PC bsd,life was good and then from next reboot
.it is stuck at bios splash.
As Bruce from this list commented to an earlier mail(not booting after
freebsd install) ,i am assuming my bios (INSYDE bios) doesn't like
freebsd partitions or freebsd in combination with ubuntu ?
