Default General install problem - waiting for PC-BSD 9.1?
I tried to install PC-BSD 9 from a 64-bit DVD version. I burnt it to three different DVD-RWs and a DVD-R. All installation ended with no CD-image error. Once miracle happened, and the graphical installer reached the half of the installation then frozen.
Do not say to change the DVD-drive - the PC is not a self-made, but a Dell Optiplex 330 with 4GB RAM. (It has run the PC-BSD 8.2 (and 7 also))
I tried to install the 9 32-bit DVD version after the 8.2 on a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo L6820 laptop, but under the graphical installer there is no keyboard or mouse either. (With an external keyboard and mouse I could finished the installation but there is still no keyboard or mouse so it is completely useless.)
So I am waiting for the 9.1 to use the PC-BSD...

It's not because you didn't made the pc yourself that the drive is ok. DVD drives do break over time. Why don't you
  • Check the md5sum?
  • Install from USB stick?
No keyboard and mouse is weird. I don't know what could cause that, but the chance that this is different in 9.1 is very little.

The md5sum has been checked as I downloaded several isos. I have tried different DVD drives in different pcs.

Default 8.2 install works on the same DVD-drive
I reinstall the PC-BSD 8.2 on my Dell. I burnt it, installed it with same DVD drive.
During installation it could recognise the install image and the DVD-drive without any problem.
Why not at 9.0?

Exclamation 9.0 Install Fails
Hello

It appears I am having the same issues installing 9.0. It's not detecting or rejecting the USB keyboard and USB mouse, as well as complaining that the install image is not found and cannot be mounted.

I ruled out a bad install image. I tried with the 64 bit DVD Full and 64 bit Live images. I also downloaded them from different mirror sites using two different computers. DVD images were also burned using two different PC's. I then went and downloaded the 64 bit USBFULL and 64 bit USB Live images and created two bootable USB flash drives.

In every case, either with the DVD or USB images, they boot fine, go about their business detecting devices, but once it gets to the USB ports it seems to go bonkers after detecting them. I managed to capture what is happening on the console. I tried the Normal, AHCI, Verbose and boot to console - all fail the exact same way. Here is what is happening, this starts just before the errors appear::

====

At this point all I can do is power off or reboot, as the keyboard is useless. I have tried several wired and wireless keyboards, tried every USB port and the results are always the same as above. I even tried disabling the on-board USB and tried this Rosewill powered USB 2.0 PCIE 1x and that was not even detected. Whatever is happening it appears that the installer is actually disabling the keyboard and mouse - one of my keyboards is backlit and when the error messages pop up the keyboard will go dark.

Also as a FYI, I tried using the PC-BSD 8.2 64 Bit DVD - the install worked perfectly, no error at all from start to finish.

This is the system I am trying to install on that it seems like 9.0 doesn't like:

Motherboard: MSI P6N SLI Platinum MS-7350 Ver 1.0
NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI (C55) Chipset
NVIDIA nForce 430i (MCP51) Chipset
Realtek ALC888 HD Audio
Realtek RTL8211BL 10/100/1000 Ethernet
VIA VT 6308P Firewire

CPU: Intel Q6770 Core2 Quad 2.66GHz

Memory: (4x) Generic 2GB DDR-II 800MHz, 8GB Total

Video Card: PNY Technologies NVIDIA 8600GT, 512 MB GDDR3 Factory Overclocked


HDD: 2 - Samsung 80GB SATA HD080HJP
1 - Seagate 160GB Barracuda 7200.7 SATA ST3160828AS
1 - WD 160GB Caviar SATA 1600AAJS

CD/DVD: Memorex 5395 16X DVD-R/RW CD-R/RW EIDE

Any other info you need please let me know.

I have the same problem like what Stinkfoot had.
When I used a desktop to install PCBSD 9 within Virtual Box. It was O.K. but when I wanted to instal it on my laptop Acer Travelmate, my screen shows the following message:
Unable to mount: /dev/acd3
Error mounting install image!!!
Please report this problem to PC-BSD support!
ls: *cd*: No such file or directory
ls: da*: No such file or directory
Available devices are :
Press ENTER to drop to shell. When finished, type in 'exit' to reboot.

Any idea to help me solve the problem?

Thanks

Sounds like it cant detect your CD device. I'm going to be posting a
snapshot of 9-STABLE in the next day or two, please test that and if it
fails we'll need a list of your hardware to we can open a FreeBSD PR.

I downloaded 9-STABLE-20120418 both the DVD ISO and the USBFULL image..

no luck, same exact issue as I posted above.. boots fine off the USB image, all seems to be going well until it it gets to "uhub1: 8 ports with 8 removable, self powered".. then it starts with the USB_ERR_TIMEOUT messages, the keyboard shuts off (all lights go out), then it starts complaining about not finding a CD image.

loaded a freshly burned DVD and booted - exact same thing, up to and including the errors of not finding any CD image.

What's odd is that earlier on during the boot process, while it flashes by real fast I can see it _is_ detecting the keyboard and mouse, going as far as even displaying the brand names of Saitek and Microsoft. Same with the CD/DVD player.

Hi there..
FWIW I just downloaded and burned FreeBSD-9.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso and tried installing. Same exact machine config as I originally posted - the install failed in exactly the same way.

I'm going to download and try 9.0-x86 instead of amd64 now just to see what happens.

--update--

no luck using the x86 version.. PC-BSD and FreeBSD.. I guess I have a motherboard chipset that BSD simply does not like.

add another motherboard to the mix..

ASUS P5N-D. Same problems as above, common denominator, NVIDIA chipset, this one has the 750i chipset.

Guess PC-BSD doesn't like NVIDIA USB..
