I recently made some hardware changes to my system (added a case fan and an ide HD), and now I get the message "unexpected busfree while idle" during boot-up, right after "Waiting 15 seconds to allow SCSI devices to settle". After a series of "SEQADDR 0x25" (or similar) messages, FreeBSD boots.
My host adapter is an Adaptec 2920C; the only device attached to it is an external Zip100 drive, and everything worked fine until a few days ago. I have tried moving the adaptec card to a few different PCI slots, but I keep getting the error message during boot.
I have a dual-boot machine, and the drive isn't recognized in Linux either (again, it was working fine a few days ago), though the card shows up fine in /proc/pci. I have tried a new cable, checked my termination, etc. to no avail.
Any SCSI gurus here who can help me?
