I can reboot, no problem. I got 7.0-RC1 on it (my CD-ROM drive was bad
too old ... it would boot up, but freeze at the 'acd0' line in the boot
Once installed, I removed the hard disk and got an error "No Operating
system". I pulled the second drive, and booted with just one disk in.
After it had booted, I plugged the SATA cable back into the running
machine (the SATA protocol is HOT-SWAP friendly) and ran atacontrol to
detect the added disk. Then I created a gmirror between the two disks.
Actually, I made two slices on the disks, one small for the OS, and a
larger one which now has zfs on it.
I used these instructions:
... those instructions are missing one step before:
gmirror insert gm0s1 /dev/ad0s1
It helps to have a partition table on your ad0... this command will do
fdisk -p ad1 | fdisk -f - ad0
(disks need to be the same size)
The x7sBi is working great. (send me some free motherboards, Supermicro
and I'll test them out!)
