System FreeBSD can not load the device, so the OS can't start so displ to login. edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP i386
I just loaded FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE and 6.4-RELEASE on an IBM X 3550 M2 server, it did not recognize the onboard network adapter. I opened the case of the computer and read the top of the network card chip, it has the following numbers:
This server does have Two PCI-Express (x16) Gen 2 slotsone half-length, full-height and one low-profile; each slot convertible to PCI-X with riser option.
Vendor id = '14e41639'
vendor = 'Broadcom Corporation'
device = 'NetXtreme BCM5709C Gigabit Ethernet II'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
