I've got SCSI Plextor CD-drives in my computer (AMD Athlon XP-based),
and ATA harddrives. When I try to install FreeBSD 6.0 booting from the
CDs, it stops with "Error, unable to load kernel". I tried first with
6.0, then with 5.4. Interestingly the 5.4 installer says "Unable to load
I then made the install floppies, and used those to boot from, and then
it installed without a problem. Although the disk slicer did make a few
errors in the partition table, which I had to fix to get Windows to work
properly (did a dual-boot install).
Just wondering: Does FreeBSD have an issue with SCSI CD-ROM drives, or
is it just the install bootup??? Need some documentation before I can
actually use it for anything, but atleast now I've figured out how to
get it on my harddrive...
