So I still stick with my statement that the -current bootblocks/loader doesn't have the computrons needed to use the ad device (or any non wd/da/fd device for that matter) for anything usefull :) The loader is fine; the problem is just that Poul never finished fixing the mountroot code. All

I've just tried and coming in via wd and ad produce the same problem. Note my previous comment - the access light is a steady on for this particular drive. It's left that way when devices are probed during startup. My configuration FWIW - (Note that the devclass_alloc_unit messages are new as

In using the ATA driver, I'm unable to automatically mount a partition on a master drive on the secondary controller. fsck complains that device rwd2s1e isn't configured and exists. Immediately mounting by hand works perfectly. Compiling the kernel with wd instead of ata eliminates the problem.
