I am very new to FreeBSD. So pls be patient.
I try to install FreeBSD 6.1 on my Amilo 3438G. It has a VIA VT 6421 inside. I have 2 80GB HDs configured as Raid0. I have one partition (80GB) with Windows XP SP2.
Now I want to install FreeBSD 6.1 as second boot option. While booting the Setup I can see that FreeBSD recognize 2 HDs (ad4 and ad6).
The Log indicates that there are problems with these drives (which my Windows and the VIA Tool do not recognize). FreeBSD seems to have problems reading DMA (READ_DMA Timeout,.....). But after this I come to sysinstall. I choose custom Installation and Partition. I have 3 drives (ad4, ad6, ar0). If I select ar0 it is totaly unused. ad6 reports: A geometry of 155061/16/63 is incorrect....
Also ad6 is unused. ad4 reports the same problem. But in ad4 I can see my NTFS partition (ad4s1).
any ideas? thx in advance
