I'm trying to install FreeBSD 7.0 on my "new" server, an IBM eServer
x225 (8647-5CG)

So far i've tried:
CD: disk1 from 6.2, 7.0,
CD: bootonly from 7.0
Floppys: 7.0

They all end the same, cds with an infinite loop of numbers, floppys
with BTX Halted and a lot of numbers.

int=0000000d err=00000000 efl=00010006 eip=000219b2
eax=000219ac ebx=00000000 ecx=c0000080 edx=000587d8
esi=0003e007 edi=00000000 ebp=0008fcbc esp=00099c88
cs=0008 ds=0010 es=0010 fs=0010 gs=0010 ss=0010
cs:eip=0f 32 0d 00 01 00 00 0f-30 0f 20 e0 83 c8 30 0f
22 e0 b8 00 c0 03 00 0f-22 d8 0f 20 c0 0d 00 00
ss:esp=90 95 00 00 00 80 fc 00-00 90 fc 00 07 e0 03 00
00 00 00 00 07 d0 03 00-00 00 00 00 cc 87 05 00
BTX halted

The only difference is when i boot from
7.0-STABLE-200804-i386-bootonly.iso, then i see
BTX loader 1.00 BTX version is 1.02
Consoles: internal video/keyboard
BIOS CD is cd0
BIOS drive A: is disk0

and that's it.
Atleast when i started with the floppys it detected drive1 and 2
before BTX halted..

I dont know what to do anymore, there is just no way to get freebsd to
boot on this thing. Is it the LSI controller? Is it the Motherboard,
the bios, the cpu, the ram? what? the disks?
