I'm not new to bsd and i've used NetBSD for many years. Since 2000, i've using mainly Linux because there wasn't nvidia driver.
Now that FreeBSD have a driver, i'm pleased to come back in the *BSD family
I've downloaded the cd iso 8.1 rc2 and 8.1), the md5sum are good and i can install 8.1 on another hp laptop (4510s).
When i boot the cd on my HP 8740w laptop (core i7 720 - nvidia quadro fx 3800m), the system freeze with this msg:
- Code: Select all
CD Loader 1.2
Building the boot loader arguments
Looking up /BOOT/LOADER... Found
Relocating the loader and the BTX
Starting the BTX loader
BTX loader 1.00 BTX version 1.02
Sometimes, it end up with more message but the computer reboot automaticaly and i can't read it but it last with "BTX halted".
I've installed NetBSD/amd64 5 and ArchLinux on this laptop without problems.
I've tried with an USB dvd player with the same problem.
