I get past the select boot 1-6 and it stalls at the lines
acpi_timer 0:<24bit timer at 3.579455mhz>port (I think, cant read my notes!!) 0xf808-0xf80b on acpi 0
CPU0 : <ACPI CPU> on acpi 0
I also have a free bsd dvd and it does the same.
I tried the verbose and with free bsd knocking out acpi but still got the same.
Did I read of a problem with nVidia graphics? Mine has a QUADRO NVS285, could that be the problem??
Hope somebody can help me please...thanks
Check to make sure your bios is updated to latest release version. If you are already using the lastest bios update, try set the bios to "defaults" (assuming you are not using RAID/exotic hardware configuration) and see if that helps.
