N/A - Using FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-i386-bootonly.iso installation CD
When attempting to boot the 6.1-RELEASE-i386-bootonly.iso installation CD the kernel freezes consistently at the same location. The md5sum of the disk has been verified and the cd works normally on other machines. I have dissabled ACPI, S-ATA, ethernet, and audio in the BIOS with no luck. Freezes occur when booting with ACPI disabled, safe mode, and verbose.
My Hardware configuration:
Asus P4S800D-X motherboard
Pentium4 2.8GHz CPU
512+256 MB RAM
MSI MX4000-T128 (Video)
40GB IBM hard drive
lite-on 52x CD burner
The problem still occurred after swapping out the video card for one that has worked with FreeBSD in the past so I think it's a motherboard issue.
The last few lines of the verbose boot option are...
pcib0: matched entry for 0.9.INTA (src \_SB_.LNKB:0)
pcib0: slot 9 INTA routed to irq11 via \_SB_.LNKB
agp0: <SiS 655 host to AGP bridge> mem 0xf0000000-0xf7ffffff at device 0.0 on pci0
agp0: Reserved 0x80000000 bytes for rid 0x10 type 3 at 0xf0000000
agp0: allocating GATT for aperture of size 128M
<freeze> no hard drive or CD rom access
Thank you for your help resolving this issue and please let me know what I can do to help troubleshoot.
boot the computer with the boot CD loaded.
Select any menu option 1-5 at the install boot screen.
The computer will freeze during initialization
