Now I get this when I try and log on:

no /boot/loader

All I want to do is rebuild the silly FBSD! Again, I fell into this silly loop when I tried to rebuild:

-- Select Drive
-- FDISK Partition Editor ("Q")
-- Install Boot Manager

and it just goes round, and round, and round. Can I just wipe the disk and start over? And why these strange problems? I´m not connected to the Internet, so no possibility of virus. Never had this problem before.


You don't mention what version you installing.

Be sure your BIOS is not set to not allow boot sector writes. Some BIOS have this set to thwart boot sector viruses.

A few things you can try:
You can boot FreeDOS and run booteasy from the tools folder on the FreeBSD install CD to install the boot-manager. Boot the FreeBSD install CD and use the emergency shell to check the hard drive for the correct creation of the folders and kernel.

If all else fails you can reformat and start over.
