Just tried installing FreeBSD 4.10 on a Dell PowerEdge 650. No problems with the install, tried creating a partition with "dangerously dedicated" and also, just using the entire disk with standard bootmanager.
Each time, after the initial reboot I get an error: Mounting root from ufs:ad0s1a Root mount failed: 6 Mounting root from ufs:ad0a Root mount failed: 6 Manual root filesystem specification: <fstype>:<device> Mount <device> using filesystem <fstype> eg. ufs:/dev/da0s1a ? List valid disk boot devices <empty line> Abort manual input mountroot> I tried: mountroot> ufs:/dev/ad4s1a but that fails too. The disk is a Seagate 120GB and it's actually ad4, not ad0. If I interrupt the boot process at: >>FreeBSD/i386 BOOT Default: 0:ad(0,a)/kernel boot: and enter: >>FreeBSD/i386 BOOT Default: 0:ad(0,a)/kernel boot: 0:ad(4,a)/kernel the machine will boot properly. I've tried two things I found while checking on this: 1. Adding to loader.conf: rootdev="disk4s1a" root_disk_unit=0" 2. Rebuilding the kernel and adding: options ROOTDEVNAME=\"ufs:ad4s1a\" Neither of which worked. Is there something I'm missing while doing the installation? If I look in /dev the devices are there ad4, ad4s1, ad4s1a, ad4s1b, etc. About at wit's end ... any help would be great. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
