Sorry, I can't do that, because system can't start.
When I am trying to boot from CD, I receive error: "No bios smap info from loader". Dc7600 has Pentium4 3.2 GHz, DC 7700 has Intel Core 2 Duo. I want to help to solve that problem. I have that kind of desktops, I have some free time and I have some experience in FreeBSD. I can do tests to fix that problem if needed. But I dont know what to test.
P.S. I think that problem is in file bios.c., system cant receive correct CPUID information from that file, but maybe I am wrong.
Just boot from amd64 CD on HP decktop
