Hello everybody,

I'm having trouble booting FreeBSD 7.0 on an HP Proliant ML115 server
using a compact flash stick.  Here is my dmesg:

ums0: <ServerEngines SE USB Device, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2> on
ums0: 8 buttons and Z dir.
umass0: <vendor 0x55aa UnoPlus CF, class 0/0, rev 1.10/1.03, addr 3> on
umass0: Get Max Lun not supported (IOERROR)

init: not found in path
panic: no init
cpuid = 1
Uptime: 6s
Cannot dump. No dump device defined.
Automatic reboot in 15 seconds - press a key on the console to abort

It boots fine on other boxes and in qemu.  I tried both i386 and amd64
releases with the same result.  What can be wrong with this particular
machine?  Can this be a hardware thing?  

Also, Can someone tell me what "umass0: Get Max Lun not supported (IOERROR)"
means?  Can this be the problem?

Many thanks,
