I purchased an HP Pavilion p6510f.  I cannot boot either FreeBSD 8.1
(amd64) or OpenSUSE 11.3 Gnome Live CD unless I change the hard drive
mode from RAID to IDE.  Unfortunately, that damages my Windows 7
installation.  (The computer is currently being restored to factory

Is there an option I can pass to the kernel to bootup the FreeBSD
installation DVD while the hard drive is in RAID mode?
