Description John Summerfield 2007-11-03 20:16:24 EDT
Description of problem:

FREEBSD's boot loader loops, spewing "BTX halted," and what looks like a
register dump.

I'm running AMD-64-compatible Linux and FREEBSDm but evidence is it's not
confined to this architecture.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download 7.0-BETA2-amd64-bootonly.iso to
2. virt-install --name=FreeBSD-7 --ram=384 --vcpus=2
--file=/var/lib/xen/images/FreeBSD_70.img  --file-size=2 --vnc --hvm
--cdrom=/var/lib/xen/images/7.0-BETA2-amd64-bootonly.iso   --os-type=unix
Actual results:
Loop as above

Expected results:
Clean boot to installer

Additional info:
This is a well-known problem, has been reported for Xen 3.0 (originally) on
Ubuntu and others and Xen 3.1, and with several versions of FREEBSD and relatives.

In my case, I've already installed Window XP; the commandline above is based on
the Windows one.
