Incorrect. That's what you were supposed to do: > /boot/boot0 needs to be installed using sysinstall by > selecting the FreeBSD boot manager on the screen which > asks if you wish to use a boot manager.

So what exactly did you do? > Please don't tell me this disk is gone.

It may find and restore another copy of you MBR. -- Alexander Pohoyda <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
