I did that. The bootloader comes up but it gives this error...

FreeBSD/i386 boot
Default: 0:da(0,a)F1

It does show the two slices that I created

F1 FreeBSD
F2 FreeBSD

The root is on F2, F1 is the FreeBSD Swap.

I hope that,


Chuck Payne

I've had this problem occur when I forget to
set the partition as bootable/active during
the "fdisk" portion of the install.

You need to mark the partition as
bootable (aka active) as well as
install a bootloader to the MBR
