I'm by no means an expert, and thus the reason for my "crude and unscientific" solution that I'm proposing
Seeing as you now know what it'll turn into upon adding this RAID card to your system, why don't you try the "crude" method of undoing everything, booting successfully, and then editing /etc/fstab accordingly just prior to shutting it back down to allow for a successful boot once you put the new hardware back in? The link to the FAQ mentioned below won't work for this scenario IMO because his /etc/fstab is currently inaccurate. Merely typing mount / would still generate an error. You could however type mount /dev/da0s1e / perhaps to get what you want though. > -----Original Message----- > From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:owner-freebsd- > [EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Lowell Gilbert > Sent: Wednesday, August 25, 2004 12:15 PM > To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: Re: installed ATA RAID, now cannot boot - get mountroot prompt > > "DA Forsyth" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> writes: > > > I'm searching the web for answers on this too, but so far nothing > > useful. hard to know what question to ask the search engines! > > "I made a mistake in rc.conf, or another startup file, and now I > cannot edit it because the filesystem is read-only.
