Hi list,

I have a problem. A faulty machine was running freeBSD with a two harddisk software raid. 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.
