Sorry for repeat but I didn,t give os version.
I'm trying to install freeBSD 5.0 on Proliant 4500.
After the initial boot while probing the hardware the system displays the following:
Mounting root from ufs:/dev/md0
/stand/sysinstal/ running as init on vty0
After that the cursor freezez and there is no response to keyboard. This happends prior to Kernel Configuration Menu.
I get a similar error on Proliant 1600, 2500, and 4500 All of them have different hardware except for Smart/2 RAID controller. The 1600 and 2500 ware running previously RedHat8.0 without major problems so I know they are ok and the configuration didn't change.
I initially tought that it was Memory problem since the memory is not being properly recognized on any of the Proliants but passing "maxmem=" parameter to kernel didn't help.
Any help would be appreciated (Don't make me go back to that dog RH 8.0).
