I tried posting this earlier, but it appears my
message didn't post. Please pardon if it did post
without my noticing

I'm attempting to install 5.4-r on an old server which
has been running 4.9-stable for the last few years
without any problems, with longest uptime of just over
6 months. I'm installing to a tested clean/blank scsi

After the cd boots, it loads the BTX loader, does a
partial boot sequence then asks for which kernel to
load- acpi, non-acpi, safe, etc. No matter which
option I choose, there is an identical kernel panic
immediately afterwards, every single time.

Booting from floppies, the kernel panic still occurs.

Is there a a way around this, or do I need to use a
different BSD? I've tested for obvious hardware
