The release notes for FreeBSD 7.3 said that it could boot to zfs. I did
not see any options for doing that via the normal install. I followed
the instructions here:
When I reboot, I get:
can't load 'kernel'
I wiped the disk and tried again to verify I didn't miss a step. Same
I saw a suggestion that zfs.cache needed to be copied. I did that
during the setup, but I tried doing it again from Fixit. Same result.
The other suggestion I saw was to do section 2 step 7 "again." That
shouldn't be necessary for 7.3, but I tried it anyway. Still seeing
"can't load 'kernel'."
Any suggestions for getting FreeBSD 7.3 to boot to ZFS?
