Default FBSD 7 cd boot-only, kernel panic

Upon trying to start a FreeBSD installation I am getting a kernel panic with the message (of what I could get in the 15 seconds before an auto reboot):

Something about VGA (which I dont have, its PCIE)

panic ohci-add-done: addr (some memory address here)

Then a message about rebooting in 15 seconds unless I hit a key, which does nothing since the keyboard is unresponsive.

I've tried removing the pcie card (nvidia 7300 GT) and booting with the onboard video (nvidia 6100 LE) but the same thing happens. I've tried booting in regular, no apci, and safe mode. I've turned plug and play os both on and off in the BIOS, same thing. In a nutshell it seems to be having a problem with memory allocation and then panics. Any suggestions?
The board is and ASUS A8N-LA with a socket 939. Further details about the board can be found here:

did freebsd 6 cd work on it?
If so you can use freebsd 6 cd to install freebsd 7....
all you need to do is to change 6.x-RELEASE to 7.0-RELEASE in options

Every PC has VGA, it's needed to boot. Every videocard on the market since the 80s has supported VGA.

Disable all USB settings in the BIOS and try again.

LOL right you are, I was thinking AGP darrr!

As far as disabling any and all usb would make my box keyboardless and mouse-free. I haven't had any PS/2 hardware in the house in about 5 years.

Guess I'm S.O.L. ?

I don't mind doing this at all. In fact I hope it works. I'll find out in a couple hours I guess.
So 7 boots differently then 6 eh? I don't think it's unreasonable or anything, but I'm interested.

booting on 6.x/7.x releases should be mostly the same for i385/amd64 afaik.


The only reason I can see to boot th eolder disk is to see if the new disk is choppy or any regression in hardware supprt for your kit.

I understand that 7 loads modules differently than 6. I had issues booting 7 on a system that had no trouble with 6. I would suggest installing minimal 6.3 and using freebsd-update -r 7.0-RELEASE upgrade to change to 7.

no need, you can boot from 6.x CD, and directly install FreeBSD 7

kldload, kldunload, and kldstat have not changed since at least 5.x, if nogt earlier. There was one release where the modle_path in the default loader.conf listed /boot/modules instead of /boot/kernel. Other than that, module loading hasn't changed.
