I'm not pretty sure is this is the correct list but here we go.
I have a intel dp45sg with RAID 5 on 4 hard drives of 160 gb each and
It was working fine until two hours ago, the last message on the
console after the server got frozen was "ad8 Detached" or something
like that and "ar0 in Degraded mode".
So, the server was not responding so I reboot it then I enter to the
Intel Matrix console menu ( ctrl + I ) and the Raid was degraded, so I
identify the disk I turn off the server then connect the new hard
drive and then boot up again, after that in the Intel MAtrix console
ask me that the new hard drive was not in the RAID so I I want to add
to it, I sat "Yes" and then in the status tab appear "Rebuild". Before
rebooting again I took a look to the documentation of intel matrix and
they say that after the boot of the operating system, the rebuild
process will start, So I reboot it again and I saw the "FreeBSD F1"
menu and then I got "No boot loader". no /boot/loader
After that I boot from the cd and I realize that the partition and the
Slices are there, but the serve does not boot.
I found a link about "Vital intel ICH7 patches for freebsd 6 and 7",
but how can I apply the patches is I can boot ?
Can some one help me please!!!!
Thanks a lot.
