I have a problem. A faulty machine was running freeBSD with a two harddisk
now these two disks should be put into a new machine, but of course it
won't boot because it is new hardware.
Kernel just reports: cannot mount root device from /dev/mirror/gm0s1a (or
sth like this).
question is now, how can i add the correct driver into the initial ramdisk
(if there is such a thing on bsd) so the machine finds the two drives?
second question: how can i afterwards remove the software mirror and only
use one harddisk from that moment on?
any help is very welcom, as i have no idea about bsd. i am a linux guy ;)
What I would do, is install FreeBSD onto a new separate hard disk. Disks
are cheap. Once you get the boot disk installed you can create a custom
kernel if necessary to support the RAID.
