[nycbug-talk] Machine hangs upon boot load screen
Wed Dec 14 04:19:27 EST 2005
Have two near identical machines, with the disk drives the only difference,
that are having different behaviours (one been the freezing).
Machine 1 freezes upon the bootup screen (the one with the menu, right
before the kernel boots).
Machine 2 works fine.
On the trouble machine we tried disabling ACPI and AIPC and it did not help.
Usually the freezing occurs after 2 or 3 seconds.
To make it more interesting... if we press enter right after the menu comes
up the machine boots perfectly fine and the machine works without any
Both machines with FreeBSD 6 Stable as of Dec 6.
We are going to try 6 Release... and failing that then we will try 5. Stable.
Will post motherboard tomorrow when I get back to the office, but it's
interesting that we have that second machine with the same CPU/motherboard
which works fine.
