I have tried several times to get a working PC-BSD system up and running.. and for whatever reason I have never been able to. But, with what this 'distro' has to offer, I am not that discouraged. *Downloads* Well done to the development team - and I look forward to the fruits of their labour.

Hi , I was heavily involved with PC-BSD I wrote the PBI creation How-to's and such, I then replaced my aging Nix box with a new Athlon64, and I had problems too, me and Kris Moore (PC-BSD Creator) have spent months trying to figure out the problem, turns out the problems i had was to do with FDISK geometry problems, but in 0.8.3 those problems have been rectified.

so hopefully it works for you too.

I think this is a freebsd issue. You can almost always have it boot if you fdisk after installation and flag *only* the right partition "Active".
