Hi people,

Somebody already got problems with PERC 5/i controller, stopping during 
the boot ?

Reading the last message, i dont known the possible problem, look:

mfi0: 587 (223981812s/0x0001/-1) - VD 00/0 progress 2% in 48s: 
Background Initialization progress on VD 00/0 is 2.03%(48s)
mfi0:588 (223981820s/0x0000/0) - Battery temperature is normal
mfi0: 589 (223981820s/0x0000/0) - Current capacity of the battery is 
above hold
mfid0: <MFI Logical Disk> on mfi0
mfid0: 278784MB (578949632 sectors) RAID volume '0' is optimal

My hardware informations are:

Dell Poweredge 840
Raid Controller LSI LOGIC Corporation
PERC 5/i version 5.0.2-0003
3 HDs in RAID 5

I tested with FreeBSD 6.1 and 6.2, but, no success!

I read about a possible bug in FreeBSD 6.1 with multiple volumes, but i 
don't find any notice that confirmed this, not even any correction/fix.

Thanks! :)
