Default FreeBSD 7.1 Rel install on 1TB won't load

Hi Folks,

Have anyone install FreeBSD on 1TB hard drive and
have problem like not able to boot into the system?

Well, I just purchase a new Maxtor 1TB SATA 300 hard drive
and install FreeBSD on it, everything install
well, but then reboot and all I get is just a display
cursor.... nothing else. Wonder why? I install the second
time and same thing happen, can not boot into the system.
Motherboard able to detect it correctly otherwise I be
unable to install FreeBSD 7.1 on the drive.

Please let me know if anyone know the solution for this.

I believe that it might be a boot order problem. So I'd recommend double checking the boot order setting in your computers bios. You can get into the bios configuration program by either repeatedly pressing either the escape key or one of the function keys I know that on My HP Z420 the f10 keys gets you to the bios boot device selection menu. It could also be that you preformed a UEFI system installation instead of An old style master booy record style installation. So if your going to go with the MBR type boot option you need to either put your machines bios in CSR mode or disable UEFI altogether and instead revert you pcs main board to look to the first 512MB of the first HDD or SDD to boot the machine.
