Dell Poweredge T300



  • Hi all,

    I have a Dell PE T300 machine with a SAS 6/ir controller onboard.  There seems to be a problem recognizing the controller on the first version I tried to install (which is 1.2); however in one of the forum posts I saw that people successfully installed newer releases.  So I downloaded one of the most up-to-date versions (pfsense-20081103-0647.iso.gz) and tried that one.

    However during the boot process the machine goes into a panic (irq_add failed) … any ideas on how to troubleshoot this ?

    Cheers,
    Geert



  • Some of the common things to do:
    Select the option where you disable ACPI
    Upgrade bios
    Disable unnecessarily features in bios sound, modem etc
    Go IDE with cdrom and disk
