I'm running FreeBSD 8.0 release (will upgrade to 8.1 STABLE tonight).
However, I'm having big problems adding a new harddrive to the system. I
want a separate 1TB SATA installed to recover backup files on, but when I
add it I only get error messages:
ad2: 953869MB <WDC WD1000FYPS-01ZKB0 02.01B01> at ata1-master SATA300
GEOM: ad2: corrupt or invalid GPT detected.
GEOM: ad2: GPT rejected -- may not be recoverable.

GEOM: ufsid/4c80e66f50f43e15: GPT rejected -- may not be recoverable.
I've tried label and fdisk, but I can't get it to work.

Yes ... but it doesn't work. The computer hardware was bought new about 7
months ago and the mainboard is an intel server board.
Can someone help me get this disk up and running (if possible?)?
