Description Steve Bailey 2009-12-30 23:30:03 UTC
Trying to install FreeBSD 8.0 amd64 from ISO (burned to CD) on a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard with a AMD Sempron 140 chip. BTX loader rebooted to computer as soon as the boot from CD started before I upgraded the BIOS. I upgraded the BIOS to latest version and now BTX loader is hanging at: BIOS CD is cd0 BIOS drive A: is disk0 I also tried 7.2 amd64 as well ... same result. How-To-Repeat: reboot and try again ...

Given the extreme churn in the boot loader, it's quite likely this has been fixed in the last 9 years. Closing. If that's not the case and you can recreate this on FreeBSD 11 or 12, please open a new bug and cc me.
