>Description:
After running FreeBSD with a 3Com 3C996B gigabit ether
card, using the bge driver, when rebooting into Windows XP
the card refuses to start. The card has to be disabled and then
re-enabled in windows before it will work. This applies both t
a worm reboot and also a cold restart. It is repeatable and always
happens after running FreeBSD/amd64. I have not tried it on the i386
version.
>How-To-Repeat:
Boot FreeBSD then boot Windows XP.
>Fix:
Workaround is to disable/enable the card from the
device manager in Winddows to get it to start properly.
