I have the following issue:
Once I've chosen in the sysinstall main menu:
1- Standart Installation
2- ad0 as selected drive.
3- I've deleted the current partitions there and created a new one for
Freebsd using "Use Entire Disk". But I have to click S to define this
slice as ACTIVE partition and that's it. Click Q.
4- I use "Fdisk Partition Using Entire Disk" I click "A" as default
partition. Click Q.
5- I select Standar like Boot Manager for drive ad0.
6- For Choose Distribution, I choose ALL.
7- For Choose Media, I choose CD/DVD.
8- And after I got the following warning:
User Confirmation Requested
Last Chance! Are you SURE you want to continue the installation?
If you're running this on a disk with data you wish to save then WE
STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO MAKE PROPER BACKUPS before proceeding!
We can take no responsibility for lost disk contents!
[ Yes ] No
9- I chose, YES, and I've always gotten the following message.
[ Unable to find device node for /dev/ad0s1b in /dev
Creation of filesystem will be aborted ]
10- I've tried a lot alternatives, but without luck!!
