Sorry for the inconvenience

Hello, all!
Sorry for the inconvenience - I am newbie...
I buy NVidia ION nettop with Intel Atom 330 processor without OS...
...
Can I install FreeBSD on such nettop ? What is platform I must to use:

x86 ? But as I know Atom 64bit processor ...
ia_64 ? But ias I understand, its only for Intel Itanuim processor...

I think, that question to "freebsd-embedded" - is optimal way to get answer on my question...

In order not to clutter the mailing list, you can reply to me directly at bdmalex@...
Everyone, many thanks!
Again, sorry for disturbing ..

Best regards,
Dmitry Bondarev

I personally would start with the i386 distribution just ot see whether
FreeBSD supports enough of the hardware to come up.  You can download
the USB-stick image (8.0-RC1-i386-memstick.img) for it, which will make
it easy to do a quick check.

To take advantage of the 64-bit capabilities you have to install the
amd64 distribution, so use 8.0-RC1-amd64-memstick.img.

Re: Sorry for the inconvenience

Hi Dmitry!

I recently installed successfully FreeBSD 8.0 on an Atom-based motherboard -
works great!!! I would also recommend the i386 distribution.

Let us know how it goes.

Cheers

Just for a counterpoint, I am running FreeBSD 7.2 amd64 on an atom based 
motherboard. amd64 works fine and my rough understanding of intel type 
architectures say you are better off with amd64 over i386 when given the 
choice (more registers etc).

HTH,

I'm running FreeBSD/i386 8.0 with SMP enabled on my netbook:
