I want to install freebsd9 (stable) on zfs root, unfortunately my bios
is unable to recognize GPT discs.
I'm using MBR disc, with BSD slice (on mbr index 4) containing
I've no idea how to make it bootable, I've tried using:
zpool export sys
dd if=/boot/zfsboot of=/dev/ada0s4 count=1
dd if=/boot/zfsboot of=/dev/ada0s4a skip=1 seek=1024
zpool import sys
When I select F4 (slice with zfs) whilst booting the computer just turns off.
How do I make it boot? Do I need freebsd-boot slice?
I have set bootfs property on pool, and added vfs.root.mountfrom to loader.conf.
