Thread: details on sata issues and mountroot prompt

  1. details on sata issues and mountroot prompt

    I have previously written about a mountroot prompt, here are some details.
    I have a system with an asus m3a78-emh hdmi board, a 74 gig raptor
    drive, and a dual core amd am2 cpu. I have had this result with both
    the amd64 and i386 systems. My steps were all conducted today as follows.

    install 7.0 release
    run freebsd-update
    get src tree
    build world
    build and install kernel
    reboot and be greeted by a mountroot prompt.

    It appears the drive numbering changed. /etc/fstab has the drive
    partitions with the number 5, the subsequent reboot got me a number 8.

    This is a test system not doing anything, so I can kick it any which way
    to test stuff.

    I see that I could probably address it with something like this.

    ed /etc/fstab
    1,$s/ad5/ad8/
    w
    q

    reboot

    I'll leave it for a bit incase theres something to try testwise.
