        I am trying to install FreeBSD on a HP NetServer 5/100 LC with the
onboard AIC-7770/ The boot floppy can not find the SCSI controller and say I
have no disk to install on.
        Has anyone else had this problem and over come it ?

Regards,
        Dave.

P.S. I tried booting with -c and removing the uha but to no avail. Even with
the uha removed it still couldn't find the SCSI controller.
        HP Tech Support don't even know what BSD is :(

Yes. Thats me :) Default kernel code thinks that maximum EISA slot can not
be more than 10. But your LC has 11 or more... So install with another SCSI
host adapter, then edit /usr/src/sys/i386/eisa/eisaconf.h ( or something
like it - may be i miss ) and increase MAX_EISA_SLOTS up to 11 or 12.

It works for me well.
