I freebsd detect the onboard controller and the drives on it, all you
need to do is to make sure /etc/fstab points to the right disks.

Now it probberly points to /dev/twe0s1* and so on if your onboard
controller uses ad then it needs to be changed to /dev/da0s1*

Make sure you have backups!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
