CPU configuration (many options here) Hyper-threading disabled
OS is FreeBSD v10.1 (and previous versions). . .have been working for 15 years+ on BIOS booting system. OS does boot under CMS legacy mode. Problem is ifconfig (FreeBSD command line utility)does NOT recognize and/or report the onboard NIC. All services that require ethernet interface will not/can not communicate via the NIC -- no DNS, NTP, SMTP/POP3, SSH, etc.
I have read from other HP web pages that this is because a "driver" is not installed. Well, Drivers are installed in the FreeBSD kernel, so where else should such a dirver be installed? AMI is no help . . ."not my problem, contact HP". HP is virtually impossible to contact.
System is unsuable. What to do?
(Not sure that thisis the best board for help, but only option from the list.)
