from my previous post "does NetBSD support Intel ICH8 ?" I gained the
notion that NetBSD somehow works on ICH8. So I went ahead and got me a
system with an Intel DG965WHMKR MoBo and plugged a Core2Duo E6300 and 6
SATA drives and one IDE drive and one ATAPI DVD into it.
The system boots fine from the Install-CD in the optical drive, but
3.1-amd64 finds an error before even detecting the drives and reboots,
sorry I couldn't read the console output so quickly. The 4.99-amd64
install-CD has the same behaviour.
Using the 3.1-i386 Install-CD the system boots and recognizes piixide0 and
initializes / configures:
atabus0 at piixide0 channel 0
but then the console-output hangs (I switched off after one minute).
Then I tried the new live-cd from
and the system runs fine! The live-cd is based on 4.99-i386, but I
couldn't find a Boot-CD nor binaries under
Can somebody please give me some hints / instructions, how to install
-amd64 or -i386 ?
MS-Windows server installs out of the box - but it would make me so very
happy to use NetBSD instead.
