Found the problem with booting the Storigen 1U servers :
They are based on the Tyan Thunder S2510 (Serverworks III) motherboards,
and they have DSDT tables that are not initialized properly. Adding the
following line to the /boot/loader.conf file fixed it :
There is also a way to reset this in the hints file (a dsdt variable),
but I have not done this.
And, with the LCD questions, one of the servers had a "refurbished" LCD,
that still had the original manufacturer's name and model number
(Phew!). It is a Matrix Orbital LK162 (R200). Does anyone know how to
identify and control the stupid card in between the LCD and the
motherboard? I want to display data to that LCD, but the controller is
not allowing me to do so.
