Hi there, I'm trying to get FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE boot off of HightPoint RocketRAID 100 (HPT370A, BIOS v. 2.34) based RAID1 array.
The machine is IBM Netfinity 3500 M10 with an Adaptec AIC-7895 (v. 2.10) The disks are two Seagate Barracuda IV ST340016A (PRI/SEC masters on the card). I've created the array in the BIOS, dump|restore'd /dev/ad0s1 filesystems (/, /usr) to /dev/ar0s1, halted the machine, and removed the ad0 disk. Now I'm supposed to be able to select a disk or an array to boot from in the HPT bios but as far as I can tell it doesn't really offer the array, just the disks. Or I don't understand the output, which is *very* possible: Channel Status Channel Drive Name Array Name Mode Size(GB) Status ( ) Primary Master: ST340016A RAID_1_0 ATA/100 40.01 HDD2 Primary Slave: No Drive Secondary Master: ST340016A RAID_1_0 ATA/100 40.01 Hidden Secondary Slave: No Drive IOW it offers (only) the Primary master for selection. I press enter here, and the HDD2 status changes to BOOT. I quit the BIOS (esc, y), the system reboots, but only gets here: Press <Ctrl-H> to run BIOS Setting Utility Scan Devices: Please Wait... Primary Master: RAID_1_0 Primary Slave: No Drive Secondary Master: RAID_1_0 Secondary Slave: No Drive Invalid partition Invalid partition No /boot/loader >> FreeBSD/i386 BOOT Default: 0:da(0,s)/kernel boot: Invalid partition No /kernel BTW, the array seems to be otherwise fine: Array Status Array Name Array Mode Block Size Size(GB) RAID_1_0 RAID 1 (Mirroring) N/A 40.01 I've searched the freebsd-quesions@ mailing list archives, and found posts with the same problem, replies to those "it works ok here", but no real help. Can you help me out of this?
