My friend took out a hard disk we had in a computer, that ran an

that I've smacked him around a bit, and put it back in the original

mount reload of '/' failed: No such file or directory

Can't stat /dev/ad6s1e: No such file or directory (6 times ... with
different ending letters)

How can I fix this?

In the /dev there are only:


It seems to me that your fstab is expecting
/dev/ad6* and the drive is now on /dev/ad4.
You might be able to plug it into another
controller and have it work.

Otherwise you will have to go through the tedium
of passing the root device to the boot loader[1],
booting into single user mode, fsck-ing by device
number, mount /dev/ad6s1a /, editing the /etc/fstab,
and continuing the boot from there.

[1] I am not certain you need to do this.
