I need to replace the drive that my fbsd boots from. I have read the documentation on how to format, and copy files to a drive. e.g.:
To move file from your original base disk to the fresh new one, do: # mount /dev/ad2 /mnt # pax -r -w -p e / /mnt # umount /mnt # mount /dev/ad2 / I am not sure if that procedure will copy the necessary bootstrap data to the new disk. I do not want to use a ghosting utility because I need a new partition scheme on the new drive. Will the procedure above copy EVERYTHING from / to the new / making it a replacement for the bootable disk? If not, what is the best procedure for that?
