Hi list,

i wanted to try out 64 bit support on my ASUS A8V Deluxe with
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+

I downloaded 6.1-BETA4-amd64-disc1.iso from the FreeBSD ftp site, burned 
a disc an booted from it.

However, it failed:

Waiting 5 seconds for SCSI devices to settle

panic: sym: VTOBUS FAILED

Booting with ACPI disabled or safe mode did not help.

Googling and searching the ML did not show any hints.

Any ideas?
