Hi there, Hoping that this will help somebody else: Deleting the XP boot partition that came first on disk (the FreeBSD was the last) and changing its type to FreeBSD FS render my laptop unbootable. I got the prompt when trying to boot FreeBSD:
>> FreeBSD/i386 BOOT Default: 0:ad(0,a)/kernel boot: The problem was that the new XP partition, not yet labeled, was still marked as bootable, as well as the real bootable FreeBSD partition. Flipping that flag off repair the problem! QUESTION: Where I can find an explanation of the syntax for previous prompt (boot2 prompt according to handbook) ? All my attempts to redirect the boot to search in the correct partition failed. Thanks a lot, /Dorin. PS. Please CC me, I am not subscribed to questions list.
