I tried to install FreeBSD 4.9 on a Sony Vaio PCG-TR1MP. It hangs
during boot (requiring a power-cycle) after printing:
ata1-slave: ATAPI identify retries exceeded
pccard: card inserted, slot 0
ad0: READ command timeout tag=0 serv=0 - resetting
ata0 resetting devices ..
I found several references to similar problems, but no solution.
The same happens with the 4.8 install CD.
