I am trying to install FreeBSD but I am having a problem. My computer is a Thinkpad T400.
I followed the instructions to install so I have downloaded the file
FreeBSD-8.3-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso and burned the ISO image to disc.
When I boot with the disc it comes to the Welcome to FreeBSD screen. But when I choose option 1 for Boot FreeBSD [default] nothing happens - it just stays stuck at the welcome screen like it is frozen.
Like in the instructions I tried to disable ACPI in the BIOS but I cannot find any option to do this. The closest I found is CPU Power Management which I disabled anyway. I also tried selecting option 2 - Boot FreeBSD with ACPI disabled - but nothing happens. All it does is stay stuck on the welcome screen.
I know the install disk is OK because it boots on my desktop computer (I abort the install). How do I install it on my Thinkpad?
