#237 closed System Defect (fixed)

Install DVD fails on ICH6 disk controller

Reported by: Traumflug Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: System Configuration Version: 8.0-BETA
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download PC-BSD
  1. Create a new disk (here: in a virtual machine)
  1. Fire up the machine, booting from the above DVD. Here: VirtualBox?, using an ICH6 ATA Controller


The OS loader works. A short time later, the boot process complains something along "Boot media not found"

While I can switch the virtual machine to use an PIIX3 controller (which works), my not-so-recent real hardware has an ICH9 controller. I expect PC-BSD to fail there as well.

Thanks for the info! I was able to confirm the problem here, it appears that that in virtualbox that controller chipset doesn't associate with the cd device properly. I'm unsure if that would effect your real hardware or not, can you test and confirm? Also, if it fails, do a listing of /dev/ad* and /dev/*cd* do any devices show up?

The real ICH9 works without flaws, my expectation was wrong.

  • Resolution set to fixed

Great, this may be a small virtualbox quirk then, I'll mark this closed for now :)
