That is strange. I use pretty much all SATA here, without any problems
at all, maybe your motherboard uses some weird characters / strings in
its identification text...
Here's what I'll need to troubleshoot this:
Boot the install CD / DVD, and right-click to bring up xterm somewhere
on the desktop.
I'll need a listing of /dev, to see how your devices are setup.
Next, I'll need the output from "dmesg"
And lastly, I'll need you to run /usr/local/pcbsd/scripts/PCBSD.FindDisk.sh
Here's the commands to do all of this, and bring up your network card,
so you can send the output files:
(Locate your NIC)
# dhclient <nic>
(Bring up the networking)
# ls /dev/ > /tmp/devout
# dmesg >/tmp/dmesgout
(Report any errors running this)
Now you can use ftp or sftp and send the files to any other system for
email to us.
And last, but not least, check /tmp, and see if we have any "ad* or da*"
files, such as "ad0" or "da0", which are text config files. Please send
those along also, and I should be able to figure out whats going on.
