Description

Hello. I downloaded a cd image of dragonflybsd 2.10.1 to try and
found that it wouldn't load completely. I have an asus m4n68t-m board
with a two core am3 cpu and sata dvd drive. When I unplugged the sata
drive and plugged in a pata drive dragonfly was able to load
successfully.

Regards, Matthew.

I had similar trouble some time ago with a SATA DVD drive. My fix was
to install using a usb stick and the .img file.

Some other things to try:

- enable / disable 'legacy mode' for your sata drive in your bios
- boot without acpi
