after running freebsd-update -r 8.0-RELEASE upgrade my system won't boot. it
gets stuck on mountroot and i can't find the magic word it wants.
the system used to have two sata drives /dev/ad4 and ad6. they were
partitioned and sliced using the deafaults that sysinstall suggested.
at the boot prompt, lsdev says:
disk0: BIOS drive C:
disk1: BIOS drive D:
which looks right, although i'm not familiar with the "disk" nomenclature.
entering ? at mountroot mentions ad4 and ad6.
geom_mirror was being used.
i've tried saying "load geom_mirror" and/or "enable-module geom_mirror" at
the boot prompt. neither made any difference.
nothing i've said to mountroot works:
does anyone know the magic word? i'd be very grateful.
