Hello, I recently installed a 9.1-RC2 system using gmirror with MBR, and swap in first bsdlabel.
orsbackup# gpart show => 63 3907029104 mirror/gm0 MBR (1.8T) 63 63 - free - (31k) 126 3907028979 1 freebsd [active] (1.8T) 3907029105 62 - free - (31k) => 0 3907028979 mirror/gm0s1 BSD (1.8T) 0 2 - free - (1.0k) 2 16777216 1 freebsd-swap (8.0G) 16777218 3890251760 2 freebsd-ufs (1.8T) 3907028978 1 - free - (512B) The drive was setup with the following commands: orsbackup# gpart create -s MBR mirror/gm0 mirror/gm0 created orsbackup# gpart add -t freebsd -a 4k mirror/gm0 # ignored "mirror/gm0s1 added, but partition is not aligned on 4096 bytes" # create the bsdlabel partitions in slice 1 (s1) orsbackup# gpart create -s BSD mirror/gm0s1 orsbackup# gpart add -t freebsd-swap -a 4k -s 8g mirror/gm0s1 orsbackup# gpart add -t freebsd-ufs -a 4k mirror/gm0s1 # put bootcode on the MBR and mark the first slice active orsbackup# gpart bootcode -b /boot/mbr mirror/gm0 orsbackup# gpart set -a active -i 1 mirror/gm0 # put bootcode on the bsdlabel orsbackup# gpart bootcode -b /boot/boot mirror/gm0s1 The system rebooted several times without issue. This system is a testbed for 9.1 and is not yet deployed as a production server. I thought I'd update to 9.1-RC3, so I ran: freebsd-update upgrade -r 9.1-RC3 freebsd-update install reboot The system won't boot and complains about: "Not UFS" "No ada0" "No boot" Before I charge ahead with reissuing the gpart bootcode commands I thought I'd: a) make others aware there may be issues in freebsd-update with the 9.1 release candidates b) ask about the best way to resolve this bootloader issue. Thanks you for any pointers in resolving this bootloader issue! johnea _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
