Howdy Questions, I am having problems with 4.8 Release booting from a large hard disk (80 - 160G) on an old (socket7) motherboard.
I have the same problem with linux. Making the root partition smaller that 1000M, puting it on the first disk, etc etc doesnt help in either case. I have also tried a few different bootloaders, in all cases, the bootloader either failed to load, or failed to boot the OS. With Linux (redhat7.x) I was able to build a bootable floppy on which the location of the root partition was stored, and boot off that. I could also interrupt the boot, enter different values, and boot off of a different partition. Hardly ideal, but satisfactory. I was kind of hoping to do the same thing with FreeBSD. (which atm resides on a 160G HD with the root partition in a seperate 900M slice.) Any hints ? Cheers. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
