OK, I read through all your links this time. (It's 4am!) I'm starting to get a better idea of the problem although I'm a bit dubious about some of the stuff I read since it didn't seem to be well documented. Now I see what you meant about Warren's description of partition. That's is indeed not easy to follow! However, I now think that it would be worth trying what Cobalt suggested.

is this what you mean? please correct me, because i want to try it.

Yes, that's how I see it too. If you haven't found it already, GParted is available here.

Changing the partition table (not the partitions) to MSDOS should solve the problem. I'm guessing that PC-BSD and FreeBSD, by default, use a different partition table type and this is what causes the freezing at boot-up. I've tried flash drives on Windows with different partition table types and they just won't work unless it's MSDOS.

However, I think that you should use the Advanced Mode during installation: ftp://ftp.pcbsd.org/pub/handbook/9.0...3682_904698251

This way, PC-BSD shouldn't mess with the partition table.

thank you so much for the attention, and i am so sorry to bother you in this late hour.

Yes, the explanation provided on the links is rather confusing for a novice like me.

Anyway, Its already late in my place too (11 pm). I think ill try tomorrow.

Then it was that, that in the boot manager in your laptop does not support new flexible MBR, and you will need to use slices in the MSDOS style. More info here:

Talking Guys.. here's the moment of truth..
Okay guys..

last night I did a new fresh clean install.
  • I wiped clean my Hitachi 500Gb (Delet All Partition)
  • I Boot using Parted Magic Live-CD
  • I started the Partition Editor (GParted). "Create new Partition Table" and i choose "MS-DOS"
  • i make a new partition for my windows (200GB Ntfs)
  • i make a new partition for the later PC-BSD Install, i make it "Primary" , the filesystem "ext2" (the book says i can choose any filesystem i like for this what matters is you make it "Primary". regarding filesystem, the Installer will change it later)
  • i press Apply, and the Gparted started to work
  • The Partition process is complete, i reboot with my Windows 7 CD, and started the Windows installation process.
  • the windows 7 complete installing, i install EasyBCD on it. and then i restart to see if the Boot Manager is applied. the Boot Manager display fine.
  • I restart the computer Using PC-BSD 9.0-32 Bit, started the installation proces, time zone setting, bla bla bla
  • When i reach the Disk Setup (Partition Manager), i choose "Advanced Mode",
  • I make manual "/" = 3000, "SWAP" = 4000, "/var" = 5000,and "/usr" all the rest of space
  • I install the "Ports" and the "Src" also
  • The Installation process continues, but its taking a very long time ( i Watched TITANIC until finished, and the installation hasnt completed, i wonder could it be my Hardisk is weakening Because i like to WIPE it a lot?)
  • in the morning the Installation is finished, i reboot to Windows, and was willing to Set the Boot Manager on EasyBCD. but I got cold feet, i am afraid something bad is going to happen.
  • so I fired up Firefox, and Post this message on the forum, i want to hear what you guys think i should do.

So guys, what should i do now?
hehehe.

thanks

Cool, there's one problem down.

I'll wait for you to start a new thread for the login problem, but I'll need to know what desktop environment you're using.
