I've some server (a 2 years old HP NAT 1000s storage system) and
I want to drop the installed W2k system and re-install it with
FreeBSD 6.2R and later use it as a central backup-system with
The problem is that this server has no CD or DVD device, but can
(theoretically) boot from external USB CD/DVD (which I too don't have).
So I came up with the idea to put a 6.2-REL install CD onto an
USB stick (960KByte), based on what Martin figured out in detail
and described here:
The boot works fine in some notebook (in some other with USB 2.0
the BTX panics) but in the above mentioned HP box is says:
error 1 lba 752976
Any idea about:
- Why BTX panics with USB 2.0?
- Why it says 'No /boot/loader' in the other box?
(of course, the file is there).
Thx in advance.
Martin, btw: the line in your description:
# echo "/dev/da0 / ufs rw,noatime 1 1" >/mnt/etc/fstab
perhaps should be:
# echo "/dev/da0s1 / ufs rw,noatime 1 1" >/mnt/etc/fstab
