I have a Lenovo T61 with a 100g HD that I dual boot with FreeBSD
8.0-STABLE amd64 and Windows XP.
FBSD is on ad0s2a, with ad0s2b as swap, and XP on ad0s1a.
Yesterday I booted up FBSD, started xfce4, started a terminal session,
su'ed to root and did the following - running a generic kernel:
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel
# make installkernel
Then I exited xfce4, did sudo shutdown -r now, and got a mountroot
prompt that I now can't get past.
I can get to the loader prompt, and lsdev shows the following:
disk0: BIOS drive C:
when I use '?' at the mountroot prompt I get:
List of GEOM managed disk devices:
I've tried entering the following at the mountroot prompt, with no success:
and several other variations that I've found while googling, but no
Does anyone have thoughts on how to remedy this?
