I hope someone can help me installing FreeBSD 8.x with a RAID Controller
from HP or Areca.
We have a HP Proliant DL320 G6 Server with a built in HP Smart Array
Controller. Since we haven't any luck in using the raid controllers from
hp we bought an Areca ARC1210 Raid Card.
When we boot up from the cd the installer hangs with:
run_interrupt_driven_hooks: still waiting after 60 seconds for xpt_config
run_interrupt_driven_hooks: still waiting after 120 seconds for xpt_config
run_interrupt_driven_hooks: still waiting after 180 seconds for xpt_config
run_interrupt_driven_hooks: still waiting after 240 seconds for xpt_config
run_interrupt_driven_hooks: still waiting after 300 seconds for xpt_config
and then the machine freezes. This happens on FreeBSD 7.3 - 8.1 (AMD64
On FreeBSD 7.2 i386 there is no problem with the areca controller.
Google told me to disable the firewire and usb ports in the bios, we did
that without any improvments.
Some additional information from the machine:
HP Proliant DL320 G6; XEON E5505 1.87Ghz and 4GB RAM
