Then my answer would be missing MBR or boot blocks, an active
partition alone won't make a system boot. it's just a flag to say
which partition is bootable, but doesn't mean that the boot flag
itself makes the partition boot.
fdisk(8) and bsdlabel(8) -- see the -B option to both.
If you have a dangerously dedicated disk, ignore fdisk. If you don't
have a bsdlabel, ignore bsdlabel.
I do both on any standard install.
