Issue when running from cd or USB flash - run_interrupt_driven_hooks : still waiting

Not open for further replies.


Nov 10, 2011
Hi all. I hope that someone can help.

I downloaded the iso image FreeNAS-8.0.2-RELEASE-amd64.iso. Initially I burnt the iso into a CD, then tried to boot from the CD. Then I installed a VM (VMPlayer) for FreeBSD, and installed onto a 4GB flash usb drive.

When I boot from either of these I get stuck with the same message repeating:

run_interrupt_driven_hooks : still waiting after 60 seconds *** seconds for xpt_config

*** is updated every 60 seconds. Then nothing...just the message every 60 seconds, with the number of second, ***, updated.

I downloaded the iso from SorceForge onto my Windows 7 platform, that's why I wanted to install onto CD or USB (preference).

I was wondering if it is a problem with my hardware/processor

Motherboard: MS-7304
Chipset: AMD RS790/880
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+
FreeNAS: v8.0.2

Can anyone help? If you need more details please let me know.

Many thanks
