Could this be a problem with the BIOS in the new machine? Many BIOS's
will allow you to set the boot order for disks/CDs/floppies but will
only remember a setting if that bit of hardware is actually present in
the machine. If you ever booted the new machine with no disk in the
same place as ad0s1a then maybe that disk is no longer available as a
boot device when FreeBSD tries to boot.
I'm using some old Pentium PCs, to install and test FreeBSD 6.2
Te problem I have is when I move the HD containing the OS to another
machine, I'm prompted to specify the root partition.
I've checked the /etc/fstab file and everything is ok.
I modified /boot/loader.conf with:
rootdev="ad0s1a" and "/dev/ad0s1a" (the same in /etc/fstab)
But I keep prompted to mount the root manually when the OS boots:
Check that the BIOS in the new machine has this disk (controller?) set
somewhere in the boot order.
