Description Rudi 2012-08-30 22:20:01 UTC

I tried to install FreeBSD 9.0 and 9.1-RC1, but the boot process is always halting after printing out the USB ports. With verbose output enabled it will look like that:

The boot process holds only, it's still possible to activate and deactivate the capslock key. But it won't go further. CTRL+C or +D doesn't help.

There seems to be people with the same problem (I'm not sure), but I found anywhere a solution:

Outstanding is that it seems to be a notebook related problem (acpi is the last output with verbose output, so maybe it's has something to do with that).

I tried running amd64 and i386 -- doesn't matter, same result. The problem does not occur with FreeBSD 8.2.

Thanks for your help!

P.S I only wanted to install FreeBSD for the second time, so I'm really not an experienced FreeBSD user (but some exp. under linux)

How-To-Repeat: Boot once again.
