I have a Gateway Pentium II PC with an Ultra ATA Controler Card and a
Quantum 6.4 Gig. UDMA Hard Drive. When trying to install Free BSD 2.1.5
I get the error message:
"No disks found! Please verify that your disk controller is being
properly probed at boot time"

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Hi....when you first boot up using your boot floppy, go into visual kernel config mode and make sure that your disk controller is being probed correctly (Address and IRQ)...then it should successfully find it and see your disks.....Adam
