Just tried it from /stand/sysinstall and no joy. Though I maybe did get a clue why the fresh install mucked things up: When I told fdisk to "write" the changes I made (marking the first NTFS partition bootable), I received an error message that ad0 couldn't be written. I'm still receiving the 'NTLDR is missing' message. This worked for 4.x and 5.0-RELEASE on this same machine and I'm somewhat mystified as to why it is now broken with a fresh 5.1 install. Any other suggestions? I'm thinking of perhaps re-installing Windows from scratch (I don't need it for much) and then using the 2k boot loader to boot FreeBSD. There is a way to do that, isn't there? -Scott _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
