FreeBSD "Since the conclusion of the SMPng project, the focus of SMP development in FreeBSD has shifted from deploying locking infrastructure to careful profiling and optimization of kernel SMP strategies for increased performance on common workloads. FreeBSD 7.0 was the first release to benefit from this optimization work." The status of this work includes MySQL workload benchmarks and memory allocator performance in the new FreeBSD 8 branch. Also, here is a recent presentation showing FreeBSD compared to several other operating systems like NetBSD, DrangonFly, Solaris, and Linux.

workaround solution! change IDE CDROM DMA mode to PIO mode.

In the boot prompt, type

hw.ata.atapi_dma="0"

and add this in /boot/loader.conf

Thanks for working sollution, but I have already migrated to SATA, both HDD and DVD and disabled JMicron in BIOS.

This step was also mandatory to run/install Mac OS X or even OpenSolaris on this box.
