Hi All,

received this error message.

Panic: malloc_init: bad malloc type magic

I can't boot my boot my box by any mean...

I try to make un upgrade with Freebsd 8.0 to correct the situation,
that not work.

I re-install my / on the box, that not correct the situation...

It's seem to be a hardware problem, It's a DELL inspiron Box..
