Installation of FreeBSD 8.0-RC1 and 8.0-RC2 fails after the "last
chance" question with the following error:
Unable to find device node for /dev/ad0s1b in /dev!
The creation of filesystems will be aborted.
I also tried to install 7.2 and upgrade it to 8.0-RC2 (I have never
done this before and thus there is a possibility i do things the wrong
freebsd-update -r 8.0-RC2 upgrade
Then I was asked to restart the system and continue the upgrade process.
After the restart, things went wrong again:
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad0s1a
ROOT MOUNT ERROR:
If you have invalid mount options, reboot, and first try the following from the loader prompt:
and then remove invalid options from /etc/fstab
Motherboard used is MSI MS-7255 Ver. 1.2; HDD 80GB Maxtor PATA;
In all cases I partitioned the disk like this:
ad0s1a - 76111MB /
ad0s1b - 2048MB swap
It makes no difference whether I use standard MBR or boot loader.
Having in mind that FreeBSD 7.2 installs (and works) flawlessly on
this hardware, I assume problem is related to broken support for any
device present in this motherboard (maybe disk controller?) rather
than hardware malfunction.
I also tried to change settings in motherboard's BIOS to different
values with no luck. I am out of ideas what further tests I may
conduct in order to attempt to resolve this problem.
not known so far
How-To-Repeat: Maybe attempt to install FreeBSD 8.0-* on MSI MS-7255 motherboard?
FreeBSD 8.0-RC3 does not seem to fix this problem, things are even
now installer cannot detect my CD/DVD drive, which is External Super
Multi DVD Rewriter, by LG - model GSA - E50L).
However, if I connect serial ata disk to this motherboard, I can
successfully install FreeBSD 8.0-RC3 from a passive FTP - thus the
problem seems to only be relevant to the on-board PATA disk
controller. And since FreeBSD 8.0-RC3 there is a new problem with at
least this USB DVD drive.
