PCBSD RC1 Fails to install via External DVD Drive

Reported by: joshms Owned by: kris
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: System Configuration Version: 9.1-BETA1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


Using the newest image of PCBSD RC1 the install stops after about 2 minutes, and asks you to mount a drive. After pressing enter a couple of times a message comes up about Kernel Panic and restarts the computer. Reburned the image a couple of times to make sure it wasn't a fluke with the disc. Using an internal DVD drive this error did not happen. This may or may not be relevant, but keep in mind this was a brand new off the shelf DVD drive from Best Buy. Here are the hardware specs for the external DVD drive I was using:

Brand: Gear Head
Model: Mobile Slim CDSL11

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This should be fixed for RC2 now, increased the cam boot delay to 15 seconds, to give time for USB devices to finish initializing.
