dragonflyBSD. When booting (and using an IDE


as the primary), I get

ad4: timeout waiting for interrupt

Can you post the full (verbose) dmesg please?


Its difficult since the box won't boot (and doesn't save the dmesg) with an SATA in the system. Do you have any suggestions as to how to get the messages?


Understand you have a non-SATA IDE drive as primary, presume the DragonFlyBSD OS is on that?

If so, or comparison:

- First try to capture a dmesg from the installer CD with all HDD disconnected.

- Then try to capture a verbose dmesg with no SATA, PATA (IDE) - and boot CD - only.

- If that boots OK, then disable the PATA IDE, enable the SATA,
attempt an install of DragonFlyBSD to the SATA, and capture that dmesg for comparison.

In either case the dmesg should be appearing on the COM1 serial port.

After a 'normal' boot, the latest will be in /var/run/dmesg.boot - even if a CD boot (in RAM).
