I needed to reinstall Windows after a FreeBSD 5.x install. I knew that I could reinstall the boot manager from the CD. However, looking at the FAQ http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/install.html#WIN95-DAMAGED-BOOT-MANAGER to answer my question, the answers don't work for me:
- if I try to run bootinst from within XP, it won't let it access the MBR - I don't have a floppy drive. When I go through this process on the CD, there's no (W)rite command in the partition editor (which should actually be called a slice editor, right?) When I exit, it asks if I want to install the boot loader, but it doesn't do it. When I try to commit my changes, it wants new partition label, and asks be what packages to install - If I try to go to the fixit shell, I can't really get a live filesystem. At least, not from the installation CD. I know there's another FreeBSD live CD project out there, but it's based on 4.x, and I'm not sure if the boot loader has changed at all, because I can't find a version history anywhere. So... What's the current (5.x) answer to this dilemma? Thanks, Dan __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? New Yahoo!
