The system is a dual celeron 366MHz with 768M RAM. HPT66 IDE controller which has 2 IDE drives plugged into it. These show up as ad4 and ad5 during the install.
The boot menu shows as: F1 freebsd F2 freebsd F3 Disk 1
none of which work. If I type: unload boot 3(ad1,d) I get an error 1 lba 0
Other selections result in: no /boot/loader
I have been able to load the fixit disk, and mount the correct partitions, but the only references I've seen to any help with respect to re-installing the boot loader are 'installbootloader' which doesn't appear to be on this install.
So...how do I recover this install and remove the 'bad' entries in the loader, and point it at the correct disk?
Disk layout is as follows: ad3s1a /tmp 2G ad3s1b swap 2G
ad4s1d /boot 128M ad4s1a / 1G ad4s1e /var 2G ad4s2d /usr 10G ad4s1b /home 5G
