I have a new PC (Athlon 64 on a Abit KN8 Ultra mobo
that I wanted to test drive OpenBSD on. My first attempt involved a
harddrive with a fresh 3.9 i386 install; however, that failed to
finish booting (hand-copied dmesg below). I then tried booting off of
the i386 install CD only to have the boot fail at the same point. I
tried both kernels (bsd on the hd & bsd.rd on the CD) with both "fail
safe" BIOS settings and with every possible device disabled.
Finally tried booting off of the amd64 CD; install went smooth,
everything seems to work.
I don't know if "not working with a 32 bit kernel" is an issue, but if
anyone wants me to test something I can do that.
try to disable pcibios via UKC.
