>Description:
IBM eServer 325 in SMP configuration (2x 246) and 5 Gigs of RAM and RAID1 on Serveraid-6m(256MB;marco)fails to boot into sysinstall (both i386 and amd64 mode!). It hangs while printing out raid card and volume info.

It hangs after printing(without ACPI):

acd0: CDROM <CD-224E/2.9B> at ata1-master UDMA33
ips0: adapter type: ServeRAID 6M (marco)
ips0: logical drives: 1
ips0: Logical Drive 0: RAID1 sectors: 143372288, state OK
ipsd0: <Logical Drive> on ips0
ipsd0: Logical Drive (70006MB)


-------
With ACPI it prints additional line:
SMP: AP CPU #1 Launched!

--------

Default BIOS settings did not help either.
Keyboard is responding to CapsLock and NumLock. In 64bit mode I can even scroll with ScrollLock on, but not in i386 mode!
