Hello, I've some server (a 2 years old HP NAT 1000s storage system) and I want to drop the installed W2k system and re-install it with FreeBSD 6.2R and later use it as a central backup-system with Bacula.
The problem is that this server has no CD or DVD device, but can (theoretically) boot from external USB CD/DVD (which I too don't have). So I came up with the idea to put a 6.2-REL install CD onto an USB stick (960KByte), based on what Martin figured out in detail and described here: http://groups.google.com/group/lucky.freebsd.questions/msg/5c759b1c87376b22 The boot works fine in some notebook (in some other with USB 2.0 the BTX panics) but in the above mentioned HP box is says: error 1 lba 752976 No /boot/loader FreBSD/x86 Default: 0:ad(0,a)/boot/kernel/loader boot: Any idea about: - Why BTX panics with USB 2.0? - Why it says 'No /boot/loader' in the other box? (of course, the file is there). Thx in advance. Martin, btw: the line in your description: # echo "/dev/da0 / ufs rw,noatime 1 1" >/mnt/etc/fstab perhaps should be: # echo "/dev/da0s1 / ufs rw,noatime 1 1" >/mnt/etc/fstab matthias -- Matthias Apitz Manager Technical Support - OCLC PICA GmbH Gruenwalder Weg 28g - 82041 Oberhaching - Germany t +49-89-61308 351 - f +49-89-61308 399 - m +49-170-4527211 e <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - w http://www.oclcpica.org/ http://guru.UnixArea.de/ b http://gurucubano.blogspot.com/ OCLC PICA GmbH, Geschaeftsfuehrer: Christine Magin-Weeger, Norbert Weinberger Sitz der Gesellschaft: Oberhaching, HRB Muenchen: 113261 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
