Default PC-BSD 8.2 can't boot
Hello guys,

I just want to install the new PC-BSD system on my computer and it doesn't boot.

The last kernel message is something like that:

CD is cd0
drive C is disk0
\

and after several minutes of waiting, the "/" wheel animation stops, the DVD drive activity is stopped and I can eject the dvd (it seems like the drive is unmounted).

The strange thing is that PC-BSD 7.0 boot works. Now, I downloaded the freeBSD 8.2 iso and I will try to boot with that, in order to see if is a freeBSD 8.2 problem or a PC-BSD 8.2 booting bug.

Guys, if you can help me with that, I'll be very happy. I brought a WD external HDD especially for PC-BSD 8.2 and is very sad I can't even boot.

Please, excuse my bad english, I'm not a native english speaker, but I'm a good beer drinker

Regards,
phpwolf

Me again. The freeBSD 8.2 boot works great. Does anyone know what is the difference between freeBSD 8.2 booting process and PC-BSD 8.2 booting process ?

how far along in the install did you get ? did the dvd not load ? or did you run the complete install and now the system wont boot ?

if the dvd did not load you should check the md5 is good.

the 32bit complete install iso should be about 3.4gb on the dvd and i believe the md5 checksum is: 6433a8abf6073b177750d48398bed341

the 64bit complete install iso should be about 3.65gb on the dvd and i believe that md5 checksum is: d417b7d45d2acad5279484162113de14

if you have the "k3b disk burning utility" installed on anything it will read the md5 checksum of your downloaded iso. just run k3b then click the "tools" tab. select "burn image...". then click the browse button to find your downloaded iso. select the iso. when it finishes reading it , it will show the md5 toward the bottem of the window. now check that the md5 in the window is the same as the number i posted here. if your numbers dont match my numbers you probably have a bad download.

if it is ok you need to check the image on the dvd is ok.

if you need to burn a new dvd use k3b to burn it, and enable the check box that sayes "verify written data" . this way you will really know the dvd is good.

if you have none of these problems, post a few more details

Hello Skull Fire and thanks for your answer.

Yes, the md5 for iso dvd are the same with the one present on the PC-BSD web page and the DVD boot and work great in VirtualBox so I can't suspect the DVD quality.

I use the i386 iso dvd version. If you can give me some sugestions, we can dig together into this issue.

Maybe I was not very clear: I can't boot to install the system.

The boot process at that point should be identical to the FreeBSD ISO's.
Later on we load some additional kernel modules, but this is failing
prior to that.

Can you test booting the burned DVD in virtualbox, just to confirm the
disk itself is OK? Or on another system?

Ok, is it actually getting to the boot-splash screen, where you can
choose options like "safe" mode, etc? Its possible that one of the
modules we are using is causing this crash.

Actually not. Man, no bootsplash, no nothing.

Loading BTX loader...
BIOS CDROM is cd0
BIOS drive C: is disk0
/

and freeze. No loading options, nothing.
