System does not boot, neither from freebsd-upgrade nor from boot CD. 
With or without ACPI or APIC it always gets stuck at the line where 
the pci0 <PCI bus> is being probed.

I am running 7.0 just fine. Skipped over 7.1 and 7.2 thought 8.0 was 
time to upgrade, but it does not boot.

Not sure if there are any other people with DL585s, I have 3 (more 
actually) and neither of them boots.

May be 32 GB of RAM is too much for it? Nothing else special. 
There is QLogic ISP card in the PCI bus, but can that halt it?

I tried to boot with verbose mode, but not much comes out of that.
It just gets stuck.
8.0-RELEASE cd boot on DL585.
I wish
