Hello, I have a question that google seems to be unable to answer. My question: Is it possible to boot from a non-freebsd partition after loader(8) is already in memory? Ultimately, I would like to see the familiar boot menu (where Chuck gives me all sorts of options such as booting with and without ACPI support) with another option "Boot Windows from partition X."
I understand this is a bit of an odd usage, so I'll explain why I would like to do this rather than the standard hard disk "F1 DOS", "F2 FreeBSD" method. I'm using a tftp-enabled pxeboot that boots a small MFS-based freebsd. I would like to give users the option of booting from the harddrive or booting from the network. PC Bios screens are unfortunately rather inconsistent and cumbersome to navigate. So, I would like to always get a consistent boot menu from the network. Getting this from the network allows me to update this boot menu centrally. So, any thoughts? Is it possible to chain load another operating system in this fashion? -Peter __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
