#636: PCBSD RC1 Fails to install via External DVD Drive
 Reporter:  joshms                |      Owner:  kris
     Type:  System Defect         |     Status:  new
 Priority:  major                 |  Milestone:
Component:  System Configuration  |    Version:  9.1-BETA1
 Keywords:                        |
 Using the newest image of PCBSD RC1 the install stops after about 2
 minutes, and asks you to mount a drive.  After pressing enter a couple of
 times a message comes up about Kernel Panic and restarts the computer.
 Reburned the image a couple of times to make sure it wasn't a fluke with
 the disc.  Using an internal DVD drive this error did not happen.  This
 may or may not be relevant, but keep in mind this was a brand new off the
 shelf DVD drive from Best Buy.  Here are the hardware specs for the
 external DVD drive I was using:

 Brand: Gear Head
 Model: Mobile Slim CDSL11
