> ======== Previous Message ==============
> 3. Upgrade install over 8.1-RELEASE - failed, but do not know why.
> Installer started O.K., but returned to find the system had rebooted
> and restarted the installer. . . . .
> ======== Follow-up re: upgrade over 8.1 failed ===
> The target system was HP xw8200 dual-Xeon @ 3.4 GHz, 4 Gb. RAM, Nvidia
> 9400GT, dual-booting w/ primary boot device being an LSi SCSI disk
> interface w/ da0s1 as windows disk and da1s1 as the 8.1 install.
> Additionally it has two IDE drives attached as ad0 and ad1 which are
> data only formatted UFS+S. The system functioned well under PCBSD 8.1.
> The abort-and-reboot problem is 100% repeatable. It begins about
> three minutes into the install while "cleaning up old files" is in
> progress and then reboots. I have attached a screenshot of the panic
> screen. Sorry I could not capture everything -- not enough lines on

> Please advise if you would like me to try anything before I attempt a

Do you know if the common stuff like BIOS and LSI firmware are current?
I fixed some weird issues on a Poweredge 1750 once with an LSI firmware
