Description Joe Heaton 2012-02-24 17:10:08 UTC
Just using the FreeBSD memstick image on a Sandisk Cruzer memory stick
to install FreeBSD on my PC and it just doesn't get past either Acquiring
a DHCP lease or the screen where you manually input network settings

eventually it seems to time-out, the screen goes black for a few seconds
and the machine restarts

I have an ASUS Striker II motherboard, Intel 2.67GHz Core 2 Quad, Nvidia
ethernet ports (or it's the chipset behind them I'm not certain on that)

I hope that helps!
