Hello at PCBSD People!

I am a complete BSD Newbie and download 0.8.3 a few hours ago to install this on a dual pII-350. Installation went through without any problems. :)

So far.

So good.

After rebooting the computer i get the typical messages for the graphics adaptor, harddisk, cd-rom etc.

Than:

F1 FreeBSD

Default: F1 _ (where _ is a blinking cursor)

but nothing else happens, PCBSD won't do nothing at all. :(

Only a "beep" from the system speaker every 10 seconds (it might be nine seconds :wink: )

Does anyone have any help for this?

mmh it seems hitting "space bar" launch the OS.
I too had the problem, just tried F1, space, return and enter, in the end it did launch the OS :)
