I'm trying to install FreeBSD9 (64bit) on a HP Proliant server
(ProLiant DL385 G1). Installation is done via remote-management
("iLO") basically by mounting the Installation-ISO.
However a couple of seconds after booting the box crashes.
Here's what I tried already:
o) Re-download the installation ISO - same checksum - same result
o) Instead of booting directly I issued the following two commands
on the loader prompt:
followed by "boot"
Neither of these helped.
To cross-check I tried booting of a FreeBSD 8 installation media - no
problems at all (besides that the machine is running FreeBSD8
currently without problems)
Any clue what could be wrong here and what I can do in order to make
this box boot from the installation media?
Thanks much in advance for your help,
