    I have a brand spanking new Supermicro 7043P-8R server with dual Intel
    3.2gHZ Xeon processors and 4GB of Kingston memory.

    I installed FreeBSD 4.9 on the box and it gives me the following message on
    the screen about 2-5 minutes after it finished booting:

    boot() called on CPU#0

    I get this message no matter whether I leave the console alone or if I log
    in and try to work on the machine.

    I read a thread about a problem very similar to this from November of 2003,
    but the thread seems to have just died without any resolution.

    Is this a known issue with Supermicro Motherboards? Does anyone have any
    suggestions as to a potential patch or other fix?

    I'm going to start doing the hardware swapping thing in a bit and see if
    that fixes anything, but I'd really like to hear back from anyone who has
    any experience with this issue.

    Thanks a million!
