I have reviewed the other posts on this issue and I don't see any 
resolution or recommendations for actions to take. I am trying to 
install PCBSD onto my Toshiba Satellite A215-S4807 laptop (specs 
provided below). Vista is already installed - I have created a 20 gig 
primary partition on the internal hd where I intended to install PCBSD. 
I downloaded and burned the DVD "PCBSD7.0.2-x64-DVD". During install I 
receive the following error:

acd0: FAILURE_INQUIRY_ILLEGAL_REQUEST asc=0x24 ascq=0x0x ..... (same as 
other posts) (if someone could tell me how I save/dump the information 
that flies by on the screen while installing please - I'm a noob to BSD)

I have read the other threads regarding this issue and to me it's seems 
the issue is still open. I would be forever grateful for any insight or 
actions to take. I have done the following: verified the d/l'ed images 
checksum prior to burning and tried installing with ACPI disabled. FWIW 
I tried to install FreeBSD 7.1 about a month ago and it failed w/ an 
similar error but was unable to find any resolution in the FreeBSD 
community (disabling ACPI didn't help).
