Something happens to the bootcode since an upgrade a while back and I've
been starting this 10.4-RELEASE server at the loader OK prompt using
'set currdev=disk0s1a' and then boot. Here is the server system...
root at dev:~ # gpart show
=> 63 41942977 ada0 MBR (20G)
63 41929587 1 freebsd [active] (20G)
41929650 13390 - free - (6.5M)
=> 0 41929587 ada0s1 BSD (20G)
0 1024000 1 freebsd-ufs (500M)
1024000 524288 2 freebsd-swap (256M)
1548288 20480000 4 freebsd-ufs (9.8G)
22028288 19901299 5 freebsd-ufs (9.5G)
I've tried the following to install the boot code, but still ending up
at the loader prompt...
root at dev:~ # gpart bootcode -b /boot/mbr ada0
bootcode written to ada0
I also tried with ada0s1 with same result. Clearly I don't understand
how to get this done, can someone help?
