Thread starter jef Start date Jun 10, The quick summary is that, with 7. I know these boards will run with an existing i drive that has gone from 7. These boards will boot from the DVD and identify as an amd64 kernel with all four cores active. The BIOS has been updated to the latest and, as delivered, is newer than that referred to in other posts here , with no change in behavior. I'll be dealing with getting one of those in to see if they have any answer.
Until this is resolved, as tempting as it is, I can't recommend this board for purchase. Something To Try jef said:.
Thanks for the suggestions! Reset the bios for power off, rather than sleep and I'm betting the board behaves more like you expect it to. If you still have issues, go into the advanced settings and give it a bit more time to recognize drives. The board can indeed boot so fast that the drives never init I only ask because I have one of these boards myself which I'm currently running linux on. I haven't bumped against this issue with linux on the drives, but the system is going to run FreeBSD soon, so you have me worried.
FreeBSD 7. No problems at all with the install, or with multiple reboots. Just a stock install from the DVD. Glad to hear you're having success!
These are nice boards for physically small servers and hum along nicely for me as long as the BIOS hasn't locked up with "old" 7. With a couple Seagate I've got two of the "hung" boards in with Intel now and I'm hoping to hear what they find about why they lock up.
Intel DQGF, will refuse to attempt to boot from a disk without an active slice. Active Slice Hi I mark them active as a routine matter. Always have I've got a second board up and running on 7. No problems at all. I should have a third up next week. Jago Member Reaction score: 8 Messages: I am battling the exact same problem right now with 8.
Can anyone point me towards an explanation regarding how to edit and apply my own PMBR to my disk to see if it helps? This would be a bandaid I am willing to live with, since I don't think anything is ever likely to overwrite this without my knowledge once applied.
I ended up getting the Intel boards refunded as Intel could not get them to boot reliably. The changes noted above did not resolve the issue reliably. I have had no issues with the similar Asus boards. So even your manual ugly PMBR bandaid didn't help? So is the problem specific to GPT partitioned disks?
