Description

Hello,

i am not able to boot DragonFlyBSD 4.4.1 on a Toshiba Chromebook 2 (CB30-B-104, BayTrail device, Coreboot/SeaBIOS {after patching https://johnlewis.ie/custom-chromebook-firmware/rom-download/ }).
First i thought it is Coreboot/SeaBIOS-related, so i started a thread in the mailinglist: http://www.seabios.org/pipermail/seabios/2016-February/010485.html

The kernel is not able to find the usb stick or an sd card. No da*-devices are present.

Linux is running well (after some tweaking) since it is the base of ChromeOS. But none of the BSDs. Even the most recent snapshots (i tested amd64 and i386 on usb stick and sd card) from OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD and DragonFly won’t boot. They all stop at the same point and try to find the root-device.

Please let me know if i can provide more information about the machine.

Thank you very much!
Best greetings,
— Ronny Schneider
