I have a SuperMicro Motherboard X6DHE-G2 with serial ata. I am trying to
install FreeBSD 5.3.
When I boot it up from the cdrom and select "Boot FreeBSD [default]." I get
an error of "ata2-master: FAILURE =ATA_IDENTIFY TIMED OUT." The hard drive
is not being detected.
If I boot it up in "FreeBSD safe mode," I dont get any errors and the hard
drive is being detected.
I have installed FreeBSD 5.3 in safe mode and installed the current updates
without any problems.
The only problem I have is after rebooting the machine and booting it up in
default mode. It is not able to mount my root partition. Also, I keep
getting the error of "ata2-master: FAILURE=ATA_IDENTIFY TIMED OUT." Has
anybody run across this problem? If so, I would like to know how the
problem was fixed.
