I've tried all my best to install FreeBSD 7.0 on it but when ever I insert the installation CD and it boots from the cdrom, the kernel does not come up. Instead, I got this bunch of digits just scrolling down my screen indefinitely. The laptop came with a windows XP OS and I am trying to dual boot. I want to use the recovery partition for my FreeBSD.

Are you using the network install disc?

I've had a similar issue on a few machines. It was fixed by using Disc 1
