I created a bug report and nothing was entered,so I thought I would ask the
group again if anyone has seen this??
Brand new drives...brand new full install:
Using 5.3 release is when I 1st noticed this. CVSup to 5.3-STABLE does not
fix this trouble.
If both IDE channels are enabled and they are all set to AUTO/AUTO for
master/slave and there is no drive (yet) installed to IDE channel2, the
machine hangs at boot. If I install a drive to IDE channel2, the machine boots.
If I disable IDE channel2, the machine will boot as well.
When it hangs, all I see on the console is:
..if I hit <return> at this point, the beastie menu comes up.
The machine will NOT boot on it's own.
