The init process is the "root" of the FreeBSD startup, and the last part of the OS loader cannot find it, so the OS cannot start. http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=init&apropos=0&sektion=8&manpath=FreeBSD+7.1-RELEASE&format=ascii You can use a live system CD of FreeBSD (6, 7) or FreeSBIE to boot the system with this CD, it should work. Then you can mount your / partition and check the existance of init which usually is /sbin/init. Don't forget to fsck the hard disk, maybe due to the failing power supply you had some damages on the hard disk (file-wise), or even worse... -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
