It seems like this thread isn't getting updated when I post for some reason. This will be the last one I try until I figure out what's wrong.
#I've done some more tests. In my last post I had booted # from the usb key. the results of lsdev from the boot #loader prompt were: OK lsdev cd devices: disk devices: disk0: BIOS drive C: disk1: BIOS drive D: disk1s1a: FFS disk1s1b: swap disk1s1d: FFS # If I booted from the hard drive first I got: cd devices: disk devices: disk0: BIOS Drive C: disk0s1a: FFS disk0s1b: swap disk1s1d: FFS disk1L BIOS Drive D: #So it's clear that which ever drive is booted from #first between the hard drive and the usb key drive is #going to show up as "disk0: BIOS Drive C," but I was #wondering why the disk slices/partition letters for #the USB key don't #show up when I boot from it. Or #even when I boot from the HD and use the loader #prompt? # Again just to quickly restate the problem, when # booting from the USB key, the BTX loader hangs, and # after about 5 minutes I get the loader prompt. The # loader apparently can't find the kernel. When #booting normally I have double checked that the #bsdlabels, filesystems, and required files are at #least present on the key. # I'll keep learning the intimate details of various #config files, and loader commands, and post back if I #find a solution. Thanks again for any bits of know #how you send my way. -Fred ____________________________________________________________________________________ Moody friends. Drama queens. Your life?
