I've been trying to install 4.5-release onto a laptop (Texas
Instruments/Acer Extensa 510) without much success. The install always
fails at the partioning stage, with the install program unable to find to
find the harddrive (a Toshiba MK1926FCV IDE HDD).
I *am* able to install and use OpenBSD 2.9, and here's a section from the
wdc0 at isa0 port 0x1f0/8 irq 14
wd0 at wdc0 channel 0 drive 0: <TOSHIBA MK1926FCV>
wd0: 16-sector PIO, LBA, 777MB, 1579 cyl, 16 head, 63 sec, 1592568 sectors
wd0(wdc0:0:0): using PIO mode 4
Googling, I also found that other laptops with this drive seem to be able
to run FreeBSD 3.x (using the wd/wdc interfaces). Is there anything I can
try to get 4.x onto this laptop?
Thanks in advance for your help.
