Today i decided to install FreeBSD 5.4.
I choose the std-install method and std slice
and disklabes how described in the manual.

On the step where the installationprocess wants
to create the partitions and filesystems there
occours the following error on vt2:

ad0: FAILURE - WRITE_DMA status=51<READY,DSC,ERROR> error=84<ICRC,

I have a "small" disk with 20GB and I know thats
all ok with it cause all checks seems to be good.

The solution I found is to boot the CD in safe
mode and everything was ok ;)

If you want to read the irc conversation go to


in /dev/null no one can hear your scream
